Diversity & Inclusion
Southern College of Optometry is committed to preparing future generations of our nation’s optometrists to serve diverse patients and communities in the United States and around the world. In support of our mission to “educate the best possible healthcare providers,” SCO values the strengths that diversity and inclusion bring to the educational and healthcare experiences of our students.
SCO does not discriminate on any basis within our educational programs or in our employment practices. Our success as an academic institution requires an ongoing commitment to fostering an accepting and inclusive campus atmosphere because we recognize that each individual deserves to feel included and respected.
SCO’s Library Services staff worked with our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee to prepare a list of suggested resources for those who want to learn more about DEI topics. Additional material will be added to this growing list of resources.
