Our Commitment to Diversity

The Ohio State University College of Public Health is committed to ensuring an environment where all are welcomed and respected.

We create awareness about issues of diversity and health that are socially constructed. We actively support the college’s efforts to create a public health workforce that reflects the diversity in our world, is culturally competent and prepared to address health disparities, and makes meaningful contributions to public health.  We create safe spaces and serve as a channel to have difficult and meaningful conversations about issues of diversity and inclusion. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is reflected in our work, our classrooms and our actions. Our faculty, staff and students are models of this commitment across the university, the community and to our fellow public health institutions and prospective employers.
