Student Experience Diversity Statement
The Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine Office of Student Experience is committed to cultivating a student experience free from microaggressions, interpersonal discrimination, systemic and structural forms of oppression, and other identity-related obstacles. OSE actively addresses these structural determinants of achievement through staff and peer support and in the intentional delivery of services and programs and advocacy of student needs to create an equitable, inclusive, diverse, and anti-racist community where all students thrive. OSE develops in our students’ competencies in cultural awareness, inclusion, and equity in order for them to be impactful future leaders in public health and in addressing public health inequities grounded in structural, systemic, and historical oppression.
Join us as we explore topics centered around identifying racism, its impacts on health, how SPHTM is addressing these issues, and solutions to change systems and remove barriers.
