Wellness, Diversity, and Inclusion

It is the mission of the Northwestern University Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine to promote the health and wellness of our administrative staff, faculty, and trainees through education and initiatives that: 

  • Support employees in making healthy choices in their work and home lives.
  • Encourage habits of wellness and support a sense of community.
  • Increase awareness of factors and resources contributing to improved wellbeing and burnout prevention.
  • Inspire and empower individuals to take responsibility for their own wellness.

Diversity and Inclusion

The Department of Pathology's mission on Diversity and Inclusion largely mirrors that of the Feinberg School of Medicine, which can be found here

The Department's specific goal and mission is to promote an academically enriching and supportive climate that promotes diversity, inclusion, and access while allowing all members to thrive and succeed.

Through strategic planning and department-wide recognition, we hope to empower our students, residents, faculty, and administrative staff to not only build a diverse and inclusive space, but to ensure that our department is a community where all individuals will thrive, grow, and be recognized in their value. 

Please stay tuned and check back for events, photos, links to surveys, useful articles, and much more!

Land Acknowledgement

Northwestern is a community of learners situated within a network of historical and contemporary relationships with Native American tribes, communities, parents, students, and alumni. It is also in close proximity to an urban Native American community in Chicago and near several tribes in the Midwest. The Northwestern campus sits on the traditional homelands of the people of the Council of Three Fires, the Ojibwe, Potawatomi, and Odawa as well as the Menominee, Miami and Ho-Chunk nations. It was also a site of trade, travel, gathering and healing for more than a dozen other Native tribes and is still home to over 100,000 tribal members in the state of Illinois.
