The Gillings School of Global Public Health’s Office of Inclusive Excellence works on developing a climate in which everyone feels welcomed, wanted and supported. To accomplish this goal, we work to:

  • provide inclusive excellence training to students, faculty, and staff at Gillings
  • integrate social justice and racial equity into curricula at all levels of education
  • improve methods for communicating about difference, inclusion, and equity throughout Gillings
  • advocate on behalf of students for fairness and transparency regarding employment opportunities and supports across the School
  • support the recruitment and retention of a diverse community of faculty, students and staff
