Diversity in Action


The UIC School of Public Health is committed to diversity in its many forms. By celebrating the unique contributions of students, faculty, and staff, we foster a more enriching learning environment and a truly global community. As part of this commitment, we offer support programs for students in underrepresented populations from elementary school to graduate programs. To assist students with the financial demands of their education, we also provide several scholarships. Beyond student support, our commitment to diversity extends to the research and service of our faculty, staff, and students.


The mission of UIC SPH’s Urban Health and Diversity Programs (UHDP) is to recruit, retain, and graduate underrepresented racial/ethnic minority students, specifically African Americans, Latinos, and Native Americans, in the health professions, and to expand educational opportunities for these populations at the pre-college (K-12), undergraduate, graduate, and professional levels. For more information, please visit our website.


UIC SPH offers a number of exclusive scholarships for underrepresented student populations.  Find out more here.
