Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

Our Commitment
The Rollins School of Public Health (RSPH) is committed to fostering a community of inclusion and promoting a culture of engagement among the student body, staff, and faculty.

Academics
A RSPH education is enriched through diverse course topics; diversity of faculty, staff, and students in the classroom; and discussion respecting diversity of thought.

Research & Practice
The RSPH commitment to inclusion extends to the work that we do in our local, regional, national, and global communities as we strive towards eliminating health disparities. Community partnership and outreach with diverse populations is central to our public health practice. RSPH values community engagement and cultural competency with diverse populations.

Communication
RSPH strives to communicate and disseminate the resources, programs, and opportunities for our diverse community and for the diverse communities that we serve. Communication at RSPH is inclusive and respectful of diverse groups and thought.

Retention & Recruitment
Because public health problems affect all populations, RSPH understands the importance of having staff and faculty as diverse as its student body. We believe that a diverse student, staff, and faculty population benefits the RSPH community. Student organizations combined with university resources support our diverse student community.

Policies
RSPH adheres to the Emory University Equal Opportunity Policy, Emory University Affirmative Action Policy and the Americans with Disabilities Act described on the inside cover of the Rollins School of Public Health Catalog.
