We are working together to improve health outcomes across Purdue and beyond through a cross-disciplinary approach that enables Purdue to leverage its unique assets to address health disparities.

Our mission is to marshal the considerable resources at Purdue to ensure all people have fair access to resources and opportunities that will allow them to make healthy choices.

Our vision is to enable Purdue to become a collaborative, transformational, and interdisciplinary leader in Health Equity by leveraging its unique assets to address health disparities and improve health outcomes across Indiana and beyond.

We’ve three focus areas where Purdue can provide leadership in health equity. Purdue’s strengths in education and research, technology and data, engagement and entrepreneurship, and communication and policy provide a strong foundation for making a difference in all three of our focus areas.

  • Identifying and addressing health disparities.
  • Helping to develop a pipeline of diverse health equity faculty, staff, and partners.


  • Cross-campus, inter-disciplinary efforts to tackle complex challenges.


  • Tracking and sharing tangible & measurable outcomes on the most pressing HEI focus areas
  • Connecting communities with the resources across Purdue to work together to build healthier communities.
  • Building trust in communities through outreach and engagement.


  • Faculty at the core using education, research, evaluation, and applied learning to make a significant change.
  • Leveraging the power and passion of Purdue’s student body.
