The University of Kentucky College of Public Health aims to be a champion of diversity, equity and inclusion, in line with our vision to be the catalyst of positive change for population health.

As we work to accomplish our mission of developing health champions in Kentucky and beyond, we understand that excellence is only possible with diversity of thought and creating a welcoming atmosphere — for everyone.

You belong here because we are:

  • Fostering excellence, creativity and innovation;
  • ​Broadening our scope of inquiry, which helps us better understand and address health disparities;
  • ​Enhancing our ability to attract and retain unique and talented students, faculty and staff in a changing demographic landscape; and
  • ​Positioning our community for global education, service, and research preeminence.
