Health Equity Initiatives

Slide 1
Slide 2
Slide 3


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 identified 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.
