To embrace a culture in which everyone is valued regardless of age, race, ethnicity, language, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical ability, religion, socioeconomic status, and geographic origin

To develop a socially accountable medical school that:
- Directs its education, research, and service activities towards addressing the priority health concerns and well-being of its community
- Inspires, motivates and empowers students to become excellent and caring physicians, scientists, and leaders.
- Facilitates a medical education to promising students, especially from California's Inland Empire
- Shares freely with the global community its innovative curriculum and advances of best practices in medical education.
CUSM embraces a culture in which everyone is valued regardless of age, race, ethnicity, language, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical ability, religion, socioeconomic status, and geographic origins.
CUSM leadership acknowledges the acute need to remove barriers to recruiting, retaining, and advancing historically underrepresented, marginalized populations. The innovative clinical presentation curriculum emphasizes public health, population health, global health, and affordable, accessible care for all. The training of culturally competent healthcare providers requires a multicultural milieu in which diversity is deeply valued and encouraged.
