Seeing the World in Memphis!

We are currently adapting this program to make it more accessible and inclusive and will be back in the Spring of 2022! UTHSC’s Office of Inclusion, Equity, and Diversity (OIED) presents the Diversity Passport Program experience. The passport allows members of the UTHSC community to see, participate, taste, learn, listen, read and immerse themselves in a diverse and inclusive Memphis.

The Diversity Passport Program will allow for students, trainees, faculty and staff to actively engage in communal reflections of diversity on campus and beyond! It serves to encourage attendance to existing programs/events as well as offer new opportunities for the campus community to experience diversity and inclusion in a multitude of new, fun, informative and exciting ways. Come take this experiential journey to bridging global connections without having to leave the city! 

Program Details

Interested members of the UTHSC community should apply for the program by completing an application and uploading your supervisor approval form to your application. An announcement will be sent out when applications open, stay tuned for more information!

Once selected and accepted, the fun begins! There are twenty-five (25) points that each participant must accumulate in order to complete the program and receive a certificate of completion. Fifteen (15) credits are pre-selected, five (5) credits are electives and therefore up to you to pick, and five (5) credits for the final activity. Participants who achieve up to thirty (30) points will be eligible for a prize in addition to the certificate.

Participants will receive a certificate of completion signed by OIED’s very own associate vice chancellor/chief diversity officer, Dr. Michael Alston! Additionally, UTHSC employees will be eligible for HR128 credit for any applicable programming efforts.
