Mission and Vision
The UIC School of Public Health is committed to diversity in its many facets. By celebrating the unique contributions of students, faculty, and staff, we support a more enriching learning environment and foster a truly global community. We strive to build an inclusive community that promotes SPH’s commitment to justice, respect, and humility for the communities served by the public health field. We are diversity and inclusion, promoting positive community impact through professional education, relevant research, and stewardship.
‘Diversity’ refers to the meaningful inclusion and integration of groups and individuals as part of an active process to enhance the work and educational environment of the School of Public Health and as a step towards equity and social justice.
At the the School of Public Health, diversity is the inclusive, welcoming, stimulating climate shared by all members of this community. Students, faculty, staff, and community partners convene from different geographic locations, religious backgrounds, political viewpoints, and social/cultural perspectives. We celebrate these differences as a source of provocative, robust, and respectful discourse and debate and as a pathway to equity.
