Public health students call for more diversity in program

Thursday, April 5, 2018

Over a three day period this week, students in the School of Public Health at the University of Minnesota were given the opportunity to share stories of difficulties under-resourced or marginalized students may face in their courses.

The initiative — called Our Voices Matter — was held from Monday to Wednesday and collected over 100 stories. The project was created to push SPH to address diversity and disparities in public health.

Note: This project was funded by a campus climate micro-grant.
