EI Framework

The Equity and Inclusion (EI) Framework is the School of Medicine’s strategy to grow and sustain a more inclusive working and learning environment that improves the health and wellbeing of North Carolinians and others whom we serve. The framework is aligned with the school’s Forward Together Strategic Plan. It has five primary dimensions:
  1. Infrastructure
  2. Access and Success
  3. Climate and Intra/Intergroup Relations
  4. Curriculum and Scholarship
  5. Community Engagement
We use Inclusive Excellence Plans to integrate the EI Framework across the school’s units and departments. The plans include goals, initiatives or action items, metrics, due dates, accountability, and are data driven where appropriate.
