AACP's Commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Antiracism

Members of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy are comprised of educators, researchers, and health care professionals.  We share in our commitment towards diversity, accessibility, justice, equity and inclusion. Further, we seek measures to eradicate all forms of racism; systemic and structural. Our active pursuits will lead to best practices in promoting racial equity while addressing diminished health disparities.

AACP Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Anti-racism Committee Charter
  • AACP affirms its commitment to foster an inclusive community and leverage diversity of thought, background, perspective, and experience to advance pharmacy education and improve health. 
Confronting Racial Injustice
  • Amidst a national reckoning that the time for change is long overdue, pharmacy schools are taking concrete steps to contend with the role that systemic racism plays in health disparities.
Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Initiatives
  • AACP has focused on a number of initiatives to advance EDI in the academy
Strategic Priority #3: Leading Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Anti-racism (DEIA) Efforts
  • AACP and its members are committed to the principles of diversity, equity, inclusion, accessibility, justice, and anti-racism. The association recognizes that to help diminish health disparities and promote health equity, it must work intentionally and courageously to eradicate structural and systemic racism, including that which may be found in academic pharmacy. The initiatives outlined in this priority provide an initial, multi-pronged approach for AACP and its members to both begin and continue their efforts of creating academic environments that are welcoming to all.
