Diversity

The diversity mission of the School of Public Health and Information Sciences is to create an environment in which each person can achieve his or her full potential independent of independent of race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, age, socioeconomic status, disability, religion, national origin, or military status. The school holds that diversity encompasses.

The school holds that diversity encompasses:

Human diversity, characterized by physical appearance, personal characteristics, life experiences, and preferences.
Cultural diversity, characterized by beliefs, attitudes, values, customs, history, geography, and norms.
Research, teaching and service diversity, characterized by academic preparation, theoretical approaches, and community based applications.

The school aims to build a diverse community that is both nurturing and challenging with a philosophy of diversity based on the respect for one another and recognition that each person brings unique attributes, talents, and contributions to the school.

Dr. Muriel Harris and Dr. Ryan Combs are co-chairs of the SPHIS Diversity Committee.
