We commit to making diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice fundamental to everything we do in academic public health.
ASPPH and our member Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) accredited schools and programs, guided by principles of social justice, are committed to taking meaningful action toward dismantling racism and ending the cultural and structural conditions that enable racism in academic public health institutions. Together with our members, we vow to continue the work we have already started to directly address and combat racism, bias, and discrimination. These are some examples of our work to date.
As part of our ongoing Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Social Justice (DEIJ) initiatives, ASPPH worked with the Federation of Associations of Schools of the Health Professions (FASHP) to declare the low number of historically underrepresented men of color (HUMOC) graduating and entering the healthcare professions a national crisis.
Celebrate diversity with ASPPH by recording a short video about your unique background, history, cultural practices, and
how they influence your career in the public health field.
Your story could inspire someone and help us develop more inclusive communities!
The Academic Public Health Resources Hub (the Hub), an online repository where ASPPH members only are able to post and share resources for mutual benefit, has recently launched with three priority topic areas:
Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Social Justice (DEIJ)
Gun Violence Prevention (GVP)
ASPPH continues its journey toward inclusive excellence in academic public health. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation recently awarded ASPPH with a two-year grant to support the Foundation’s Transforming Academia for Equity (TAE) program. With this support, ASPPH will partner with RWJF, the initiative’s coordinating center, and seven grantee teams from ASPPH member institutions to facilitate opportunities to share information and open discussions for all our member academic public health institutions to work together to advance anti-racism strategies. The TAE grant leverages the ASPPH Framework to Dismantle Racism and Structural Racism in Academic Public Health.
