Beginning July 1, 2022, the Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior instituted a new diversity, equity, inclusion, and anti-racism (DEI/AR) faculty education requirement.
- Effective July 1, 2022, faculty seeking reappointment must obtain 2 hours of DEI/AR-related training per year, 1 hour of which must be anti-racism in focus.
- Effective July 1, 2022, those seeking appointment must submit documentation of 1 annual hour of DEI/AR-related training with appointment materials. New Clinical Instructors seeking appointment are required to view Dr. Tracey Guthrie's talk, "Racism in Academic Psychiatry: Hiding Behind the Cloak of Benevolence."
A list of recommended on-demand and live activities, updated monthly, is available on the DPHB website. The Anti-Racism Steering Committee’s Faculty Policies Working Group will evaluate unlisted activities on a case-by-case basis each month. Please complete this form for consideration.
Developed by the Anti-Racism Steering Committee's Faculty Policies Working Group, the DEI/AR Faculty Training Requirement empowers faculty to contribute to DPHB’s mission to foster diversity, equity, and inclusion and promote anti-racism within our clinical, research, and educational settings and in the mental health care community at large.
