As the world indeed becomes flatter, the demand for greater engagement within and outside our complex network of diverse communities grows. Achieving the Faculty's vision of "International leadership in improving health through innovation in research and education", and its mission of "We fulfill our social responsibility through developing leaders, contributing to our communities, and improving health of individuals and populations through the discovery, application and communication of knowledge", requires a broader, interdisciplinary and multilateral world view. A commitment to global health is central to the Faculty's priority strategic direction for Social Responsibility. Two ways in which we are addressing the emerging needs of a global society are through our new Medicine at U of T Roadmap for Global Health and the Faculty's Statement on Diversity. Both items were approved by Faculty Council on September 26, 2011.
