The University of California Global Health Institute advances the mission of the University of California to improve the lives of people in California and the world through our commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

Diversity is a defining feature of the University of California and we embrace it as a source of strength. Our differences — of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, socioeconomic status, abilities, experience and more — enhance our ability to achieve the university’s core missions of public service, teaching and research. We welcome faculty, staff and students from all backgrounds and want everyone at UC to feel respected and valued. >> Read the University of California statement on diversity.
