Commitment to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

The work of equity, diversity and inclusion is the work of Public Health. We are committed to a future that is free of health inequities, that promotes the highest level of wellness for the communities we serve, and a diverse and inclusive public health workforce that embodies humility, respect, leadership and service on behalf of, and with, the diverse communities we are privileged to serve. 

The University of Washington School of Public Health Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Committee (SPHEDIC) is a school-wide governing body that works to foster a diverse,  inclusive, welcoming, engaging, supportive, and intellectually stimulating learning environment for all at the school. 

The Summer Health Professions Education Program (SHPEP) is an enrichment program designed to strengthen the academic proficiency and career development of underrepresented students and prepares them for a successful matriculation into health profession schools.
