College of Public Health Value Statement 2010

As an overarching statement of commitment, the faculty, staff, and students at the USF COPH affirm the Universal Declaration of Human Rights that “humans have a right to the resources necessary for health” and that “everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being.”

In the spirit of justice and equality, the COPH values reflect our commitment to public health and to the preparation of public health professionals as advocates for the interests of local, national and global communities. These values should serve as a guide to decisions and behaviors, and should form the moral compass that guides and sets the standard for excellence and effectiveness in everything the college and its members undertake.

The COPH core values are:
  • community engagement,
  • global perspective,
  • diversity,
  • leadership, and
  • the professional environment.
