Scientist and humanitarian Albert Einstein agrees to lend his name to our new medical school. He specifies that there be no discrimination
with regard to race and creed.
The Einstein Enrichment Program
is established to enable minority and/or economically disadvantaged secondary school students who are academically motivated to pursue careers in science, medicine and health.
Einstein participates for the first time in the AMSNY Post-Baccalaureate Program
at SUNY Buffalo. The goal of the program is to expand the pool of underrepresented minority and educationally and economically disadvantaged students in medicine.
Einstein establishes the Hispanic Center of Excellence
, joining a group of distinguished institutions that serve the healthcare needs of the Hispanic community.
(Center to Reduce and Eliminate Ethnic and Racial Health Disparities) wins an NIH renewal award for its Center of Excellence in Partnerships for Community Outreach, Research on Health Disparities, and Training (Project EXPORT).
Einstein introduces the Office of Diversity Mentoring
to help members of underrepresented groups at Einstein build successful careers in research and healthcare.
The Safe Zone Allies Program/Safe Zone Mentoring Program is designed to increase understanding of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) persons and improve the institutional climate.
More than 60 Einstein faculty members and staff, including the Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Planning Committee, attend a planning team retreat. Attendees finalize recommendations and goals for the Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Plan for Excellence.
Einstein announces its first comprehensive Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Plan for Excellence and launches implementation action plan.
A Diversity and Inclusivity Q&A
It is my hope that we can meaningfully acknowledge and address racialized issues within our community with the courage and conviction especially required in this political clime.
