Skip to main content

The mission of the Health undergraduate program is to develop a community of scholars and professionals through teaching, mentoring, research, and service. To accomplish this mission, we will impact communities using innovative approaches that eliminate health disparities and promote health locally, nationally, and globally.

Program Values

Equity: Reducing health disparities by educating our students to promote health equity in their work and by supporting our faculty to conduct meaningful, culturally-informed, and community-centered research to eliminate the morbidity and mortality gaps experienced by underserved and marginalized groups.

Integrity: Contributing to the ongoing scholarly conversations in health sciences through ethical practice and research that meets the highest standards of rigor in methodology and interpretation of results.

Community Connection: Establishing and maintaining partnerships with our academic and community stakeholders in such a way that we are compassionate and understanding of community needs while maintaining excellence in our work.

Personal and Programmatic Growth: Maintaining and continuing to develop at the individual and program levels as ethical, nurturing, and respectful of those who serve and pass through our program.
