It is the position of the American Student Dental Association that dental schools should ensure all students, faculty, staff and administration are sensitive to the diversity of their colleagues and patients.
ASDA defines diversity through numerous, intersecting dimensions including but not limited to race, ethnicity, nationality, gender identify, age, physical abilities/qualities, sexual orientation, religious and ideological beliefs, veteran status, citizenship status and personal lifestyle preferences. ASDA recognizes the unique challenges faced by these diverse populations. (Excerpt from E-4 Sensitivity to Diversity Policy)
