Simmons Scholars Program
The Simmons Scholar Program (SSP) has been built upon the abundant evidence that the research, clinical and educational enterprise of the School of Medicine will receive a direct and substantial benefit if there is broad diversity among its students and faculty. This Program was originally established in 1994 by then Dean Michael Simmons. In 2007, the mission of the Simmons Scholar Program was expanded to include the recruitment of a faculty member from any demographically underrepresented group that would meet the School of Medicine’s goal of a diverse workforce.
