Diversity and International Engagement

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging

The College of Health and Human Sciences is committed to diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging throughout the work of its departments, centers, programs and outreach.

With the leadership and support of the college administration, we continue to build upon our commitment to continue the lifelong journey of learning and building cultural competence. Our faculty, staff and students have participated in Wildcat Dialogues, Safe Zone trainings, KSUnite, Intercultural Development, and many other University initiatives.

In the College of Health and Human Sciences, we focus first on people. Our faculty, staff and students have dedicated their education and work to bettering the lives of individuals throughout the world and working in diverse societies.

Our collective mission is best accomplished when every member of the university community acknowledges and practices the following principles.

If you would like to be involved or have ideas please reach out so that we can continue to make the College of Health and Human Sciences an inclusive culture for all.
