Students, faculty, and staff benefit from the School of Public Health’s rich, complex mix of backgrounds and perspectives. Diversity is essential to our educational programs and invaluable to our health as a community. Our students hail from 49 countries and speak more than 60 different languages, among them: Zulu, Russian, Khmer, Italian, Arabic, Bengali, Haitian Creole, and Punjabi. Earning a degree at the School of Public Health gives students the chance to form relationships with peers from around the globe and further enrich the practice of public health through a cross-cultural experience. Grounded in equity and diversity, our students graduate equipped with the openness and cross-cultural understanding that is essential to effective public health in the twenty-first century.
