The USF COPH values inclusiveness and respect for all people. We will accomplish this through our culture, curriculum, research, and service by continually fostering an environment within the College that embraces diversity, a sense of community, collegiality, and life-long learning. To sustain our leadership and bring out the best in one another, we seek to promote a healthy social and emotional work and learning culture. We value all members of our community, and we know that a civil and considerate environment is integral to the health and well-being of faculty, staff, students, and visitors.
The College of Public Health, USF Health and the entire University are committed to providing a working and learning environment that respects and appreciates individuals from all cultures and backgrounds. Programs are offered within USF Health and USF to encourage communication among our faculty, staff, and students about the importance of diversity in our academic community, as well as, to enhance their understanding of the University policies that are designed to protect the rights of all individuals.
