Diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA) are fundamental strengths of our organization and profession. The CAATE Board of Commissioners met on September 22-23, 2023, and unanimously affirmed their commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA) and the CAATE DEI Standards.
We understand that the landscape of health care and education is rapidly evolving, and as leaders in the field of athletic training, we have a responsibility to uphold our mission - to serve the public and profession by establishing and ensuring compliance with accreditation standards that facilitate quality outcomes, continuous improvement, innovation and diversity to enhance athletic training education.
As we move forward, the CAATE will work closely with accredited programs to provide resources, guidance, and assistance with the DEI Standards. We recognize that this will require ongoing communication, effort, and collaboration, and we are dedicated to facilitating meaningful progress in this area.
