Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The Arnold School of Public Health is committed to developing a more diverse and culturally competent faculty, staff and student body that better serves our local and global communities.

Central to public health research and training is an appreciation of the effects of cultural and socioeconomic diversity on the health of communities. The Arnold School recognizes and values cultural diversity as a key component that augments the process of problem solving by recognizing multiple perspectives. Our students, faculty, staff and community partners represent different racial/ethnic groups, religious and lifestyle backgrounds, physical ability, geographic locations and political viewpoints. These differences create a climate of rich, robust and respectful discussion and debate that facilitates equity and inclusion. We understand the benefits of supporting diversity within our research, educational and outreach activities.

Mission

The Arnold School of Public Health embraces diversity of all kinds. We celebrate the varied experiences and backgrounds of students, faculty and staff and strive to create a more enriching and inclusive environment for all.

Vision

At the Arnold School of Public Health, we strive to create an inclusive, diverse community that facilitates our commitment to social justice, equity and humility for the communities that we serve.
