Diversity & Inclusion

Commitment to Service

Campus Health is committed to positioning itself as an exceptional health center by fostering an inclusive culture that encourages, supports, and celebrates the diverse backgrounds of our employees and the community we serve. Now, more than ever, is the time to commit to real change and progress. Our work is ongoing, and we will continue to approach it with humility, dedication, and collaboration with the campus community and QT+BIPOC students.

Student Voices

It is critical that we hear from students as we learn to better serve the QT+BIPOC members of the University community. If you have feedback for us, we invite you to share it here.

Diversity & Inclusion Committee

Campus Health's Diversity & Inclusion Committee was established in the Spring of 2019. It is an interdisciplinary and diverse committee with representation from several Campus Health units: medical and Counseling & Psych Services (CAPS) provider staff, nursing, administrative services, clinical support services, health educators, and UA students.

The committee is responsible for the development, implementation, and oversight of diversity and inclusion efforts at Campus Health.  They bring awareness of diversity and inclusion topics related to service delivery and workplace policies through policy review, training, and continued monitoring.
