Our Mission

Supporting and Leading DEI in Chiropractic

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are central to ACC’s mission. These are the guiding principles to grow a diverse student body, faculty, and staff; to build a culture of inclusion, access, and belonging; and to strengthen cultural competencies.

ACC is committed to working with its members to build and sustain a strong DEI foundation which is critical in serving our diverse communities and addressing inequities in health care.
