Every dental education institution must maintain a
humanistic environment that is respectful of faculty, staff, students and
patients, regardless of race, ethnicity, sex, gender identity, nationality,
socioeconomic status or any other element of diversity. The most inclusive
institutions celebrate these differences to make a safe, welcoming environment
for all. Four institutions share their perspectives on this issue. We will
discuss a tool for exploring and teaching implicit bias and share strategies to
develop and assess cultural competence in students. Finally, we will explore
ways to create and measure a humanistic institutional climate through policies,
training, development and assessment best practices.
- Create and implement policies focusing on an environment that facilitates equitable treatment in a climate that fosters success and achievement.
- Implement student, staff and faculty development programs and devise assessment plans aimed at measuring campus climate.
- Devise student cultural competence curriculum and assessment experiences.
