At YSPH, we aim to foster diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. To meet the public health challenges of today and tomorrow, we are committed to training a diverse public health workforce that reflects the communities we serve; to addressing health inequities through our teaching, research, and service; and to nurturing a genuine sense of belonging among our students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

We value intellectual curiosity and the free and respectful expression of diverse opinions. Discrimination and harassment in any form have no place at YSPH. There are several resources available if someone encounters or witnesses intolerance, discrimination, or behavior that threatens diversity and inclusion at YSPH:
