GAINESVILLE (FLV) – The University of Florida College of Medicine invests “abundant resources” to push “divisive philosophies and other forms of social justice activism” on its students, a new report from Do No Harm found.
“The conditioning begins from the moment a prospective student begins exploring UFCOM, continues through the admissions process, and persists throughout the doctoral program,” they say.
The report says students new to the school will encounter diversity, equity, and inclusion doctrine “early and often” with the interactions they have with equity offices and diversity councils.
Do No Harm outlines the “ideological road to activism,” how the school is “targeting” prospective students, pushes “anti-racism” in the Code of Ethics, and continues the “anti-racism campaign.”
The admissions page of UFCOM says they strive for a culture that is “informed and inclusive” to build a “diverse community of future physicians who share a commitment to excellence and equity in healthcare.”
The report also found that the university’s “Anti-Racism office” endorses “Academics 4 Black Lives,” and the Office of Undergraduate Affairs brought in speakers like Black Lives Matter co-founders Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza, and Opal Tometi during the 2020-2021 academic year.
The UF Center for Inclusion & Multicultural Engagement offers several virtual and liveDo No Harm Report, Laura L. Morgan, MSN, RN

‘Woke’ ideology has been a target of the Florida government under the DeSantis Administration. Gov. Ron DeSantis’ ‘Stop WOKE Act’ was recently temporarily injuncted by an Obama-appointed judge who called the law “positively dystopian.”
District Judge Mark Walker said, “Our professors are critical to a healthy democracy, and the State of Florida’s decision to choose which viewpoints are worthy of illumination and which must remain in the shadows has implications for us all. If our ‘priests of democracy’ are not allowed to shed light on challenging ideas, then democracy will die in darkness.”
The law bans educators and workplace employers from teaching Floridians that their “moral character” is determined by race, sex, or national origin. The bill also aims to prohibit corporations from mandating employees go through Critical Race Theory training.
DeSantis’ team released the following statement in response:
This recent ruling included several victories for our legal team. We expect many more and ultimately to prevail in this litigation. We strongly disagree with Judge Walker’s preliminary injunction orders on the enforcement of the Stop W.O.K.E. Act and will continue to fight to prevent Florida’s students and employees from being subjected to discriminatory classroom instruction or mandated discriminatory workplace training. The Stop W.O.K.E. Act protects the open exchange of ideas by prohibiting teachers or employers who hold agency over others from forcing discriminatory concepts on students as part of classroom instruction or on employees as a condition of maintaining employment. An ‘open-minded and critical’ environment necessitates that one is free from discrimination.
We intend to appeal.Bryan Griffin, Press Secretary for Gov. Ron DeSantis
