Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging

The Department of Nutrition and Health Sciences values the contributions of each person and strives to make each interaction matter. 
We are committed to engaging in practices that demonstrate the values of diversity and inclusive excellence.

We Strive to Be Intentional, Accountable, and Reflective

Our Programs

We encourage participation in a number of programs and resources that help inform and advance our commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Our Actions

Our personnel and programs strive to provide the leadership to effectively deal with differing ideas and views to enable them to interact with diverse people and cultures in meaningful and constructive ways. We are also actively looking for people who will contribute to the diversity of our community. We strongly encourage applications for faculty, staff, and administrator positions from groups who are underrepresented in the fields of Nutrition and Health Sciences.
