The John D. Bower School of Population Health (SOPH) is committed to sharing values of diversity, equity, and inclusion to achieve excellence. Each person at the SOPH is welcomed and appreciated. We are dedicated to promoting excellence by recruiting, retaining, and cultivating a diverse group of students, staff, faculty, and administrative leaders to improve population health and reduce health disparities.
We celebrate diversity of ideology, perspectives, cultural and social identities, and experiences, and we recognize our responsibility towards the populations we serve. We understand the significance of long-standing multidisciplinary partnerships and collaborations with diverse communities to promote health equity and improve population health outcomes.
We strive to include diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusivity practices at the center of our daily work and learning environment. Through innovative cross-cultural teamwork, we are educating, conducting research, and implementing programs to fill the gaps between equity and health disparities.
