Loma Linda University and Health System are committed to transforming lives through education, healthcare, and research. Our mission is guided by Biblical principles designed to create a culture where values of compassion, integrity, and excellence are deeply embedded. Culture and values form the basis and drive our efforts toward access, diversity, and inclusion in all we do.
At Loma Linda, we recognize, nurture, and appreciate the differences among individuals. Our message of wholeness supports the “whole person”, regardless of personal characteristics. Diversity provides us with an advantage for innovative thinking. By being inclusive, we generate a high level of satisfaction and engagement throughout our institutions. Ensuring equal access gives individuals wide open opportunities to rise as far and as high as their talents, abilities, and interest allow.
Transforming lives can only be accomplished by fully utilizing all the human talent that joins us in our quest. To do differently would not only run counter to our values but also undermine God’s ministry to the world.
“On our campus, diversity embraces the importance of building relationships and cooperation among our various groups. It means that everyone-- regardless of ethnicity, race, culture, gender, religion, physical condition or any other personal characteristic—is valued, appreciated and included.”
