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.

The Office of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (OEDI) partners with the ColoradoSPH tri-campus community to shape policies, practices, and programs that support a fair, diverse, and respectful environment for all individuals. Through our collaborative efforts, the OEDI supports the school's EDI strategic priorities and plans to dismantle structural racism. A critical part of our work is ensuring individuals from historically excluded communities can access opportunities and thrive. We strive to create an environment that encourages full participation and belonging for all.
The Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion will host a virtual book discussion group this academic year open to all ColoradoSPH students, faculty, and staff. If you are interested in joining the discussion, please stay tuned for more detailed information regarding the reading and discussion schedule.
