Equity, Diversity & Inclusive Excellence

Our commitment


Our goal is to build a diverse and representative academic community that recognizes the importance of social, economic, health, and environmental justice. We strive to promote diversity and equity and to be a model of inclusive excellence.

As a tri-campus partnership, ColoradoSPH stands with academic, practice, and community partners nationwide to condemn racism, injustice, and inequity. Racism is a public health crisis, and we are committed to dismantling structural racism. Ableism, ageism, homophobia, misogyny, racism, transphobia, xenophobia, and all other forms of hatred or discrimination will not be tolerated. We are committed to recognizing and confronting our internalized racism and implicit biases and constantly striving to act in ways that affirm and support students, staff, faculty, leadership, alumni, and communities with whom we engage.

On July 22, 2020, the Colorado School of Public Health held a town hall to provide an open forum to discuss the draft plan to address structural racism and inequality within our community and explore the external role of the school.
