At UChicago, a deep commitment to diversity drives ideas, builds careers, enriches communities, and spurs innovation.

For University of Chicago scholars, diversity has a direct effect on the creation of knowledge.

“Having the greatest number of representatives from the most diverse pool of thinkers represents the most likely opportunity to address a problem from all its perspectives,” says William McDade, Associate Professor in Anesthesiology and Critical Care and the University’s deputy provost for research and minority issues. “A diverse group of scholars really means that you have the opportunity to advance knowledge in a more robust fashion.”
