Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and Inclusion Committee

At the University of Arizona Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health, we strive for Inclusive Excellence.

“At the center of Inclusive Excellence is the recognition and acceptance of the talents, worldviews, perceptions, cultures, and skills that diverse communities bring to the education enterprise that can be harnessed to prepare students for leading, living, and working in a diverse world. Native American, LGBTQ, Asian American, White, Latino, African American, women, veterans, people with disabilities, Jewish, Christian, International, Muslim, fraternities and sororities, athletes, alumni and many other communities of students, staff and faculty contribute positively to all dimensions of the university. Every individual and group at UA is a critical component of and contributor to diversity and inclusiveness. Making a difference in diversity at the University of Arizona is the essence of inclusive excellence.”
- UA Office of Diversity & Inclusion

 

“The importance of creating a safe and inclusive environment for all students, faculty, and staff at the UA Zuckerman College of Public Health cannot be overstated. We are proud of the incredible diversity—diversity by its broadest definition—within our college, which greatly enriches our learning, working, and research environment.”   
- Iman A. Hakim, MD, PhD, MPH,
Dean of the College of Public Health

Teresa Sosa, MPH Student

“As an underrepresented, non-traditional student, and first in my family to attend graduate school, I am profoundly appreciative for the MEZCOPH experience. Learning from diverse and impassioned classmates; committed and distinguished faculty with interdisciplinary backgrounds, and contributing to extracurricular experiences has provided me with a profound understanding of the intersections of public health, particularly from a social justice perspective.”
- Teresa Sosa, MPH Student

Lidi Esquivel, Undergraduate Student

“It is because of the many scholarships that the UA offers to first generation and minority students that I was able to come here. The UA definitely strives towards giving as many opportunities possible to underrepresented minority students, and that is why I love this university so much.”
- Lidi Esquivel, undergraduate student

Chantal Nez, MPH Student

"MEZCOPH has given me the opportunity to explore my passion of working with American Indian communities through the Service Learning Course, class projects, and my internship. MEZCOPH's diverse and supportive faculty and staff are devoted to molding upcoming public health leaders and their expertise has made my experience at MEZCOPH enjoyable and life-changing."
