The YSPH Student Experience

What do students at the School of Public Health love most about Yale?

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Across the YSPH community, the dean, faculty, staff and the alumni have adopted mentorship, recruitment, retention and professional development practices to help meet our goal of having an outstanding and diverse School of Public Health—a place that better reflects the local, national and international communities we study.

Our scientists investigate the role of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, aging, socio-economics and geo-politics in health disparities — in all of our research endeavors. Through their internships, our students work with diverse populations from New Haven to the shores of Africa, from the mountains of South America, to the cities of Asia. Our reach is limited only by our imaginations and access.

We are committed to offering a welcoming environment to all prospective and existing members of our community. 

The YSPH Diversity Committee invites comments about what we are doing well and what we could do better in our on-going effort to improve policies, procedures, and the school's environment to attract, retain, and promote diversity among our faculty, staff and students. Please send any comments, ideas or suggestions on how to improve diversity and inclusion at YSPH.
