An Inclusive Community

Our mission is to provide education, conduct research, and partner with communities and organizations to improve the health of populations. We view health as a human right and have a special commitment to improving health in cities, eliminating health disparities, and promoting health in all policies. Dornsife SPH faculty, staff and students are committed to the following:

  • Health as a human right and the importance of social justice to health
  • Integrity, rigor, critical thinking, and self-reflection in research, scholarship, and education
  • Translation of knowledge into actions to improve population health and eliminate health disparities
  • Sustainable and equitable community partnerships
  • Inclusiveness, diversity, empathy and respect for others regardless of position or status
  • Human dignity and open and honest dialogue
  • Service to local communities while recognizing the value of a global perspective

The work of equity, diversity and inclusion is the work of Public Health. We are committed to a future that is free of health inequities, that promotes the highest level of wellness for the communities we serve, and a diverse and inclusive public health workforce that embodies humility, respect, leadership and service on behalf of, and with, the diverse communities we are privileged to serve.
