Dr. Saleh Rahman, Interim Assistant Dean for Diversity and Inclusion

“My goal is to bring and celebrate diversity in every aspect of our college and community. We must remember that any intolerance or bigotry must be answered by diversity and inclusion. Together, we can cherish and preserve ethnic and cultural diversity and become stronger with ideas, dignity, openness, healing, love and joy through inclusiveness.

As a medical and public health scientist, I came to know that we as human beings are not very different, no matter if we are white, black or brown. As a writer I came to know about different cultures and societies and learnt that our diversity and uniqueness is the best armamentarium to uphold humanity in the world. So, I am passionate about not only continuing the great tradition of diversity and inclusion at the UCF College of Medicine but also creating infrastructure and processes for inclusion that promote sustainability.”
