Diversity and Inclusion

The Michigan tradition is grounded in providing opportunities to all qualified students regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or religion.  The Office of Diversity and Inclusion, under the direction of Dr. Todd Ester, works with the Office of Student Affairs to provide recruitment, counseling and mentoring support. 

The School of Dentistry was among the first dental schools to actively recruit and enroll students from diverse backgrounds.  For more than three decades The University of Michigan has been a leader in graduating dentists from underrepresented groups.
