The School of Health Science Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Taskforce aspires to provide all students, staff, and faculty of the School of Health Science an openhearted, accessible, and inclusive experience. We want to be beyond words and focus on engagements, demonstrating our assurance by prioritizing diversity, equity, and inclusion at the department, College, University, and community levels.

Here's what DEI means to our taskforce members

Dr. Uzay Emir"It means accepting other people who may be different from me, whether that be a race or religion or just of different social status or physical appearance, or political opinion. As a Purdue University  and the greater Lafayette community member, it is my responsibility to contribute to a society that “lives a tree alone and free but Like a forest in brotherhood.”

Dr. Aaron Bowman"I hunger for diverse ideas, creative concepts, alternative approaches and a wide-spectrum of priorities and skills.  When I engage a diverse community, welcoming of differences both visible to the eye or not, I benefit from the view of others' perspectives and challenge the boundaries of my identity and beliefs."

Tierra Brooks: "Providing a wealth of personal and professional opportunities for growth and development. It involves expanding one's worldview through critical and engaged discussions about different topics, and creates an enviroment that celebrates social, political, religious and cultural differences.'
