UCGHI stands in solidarity against systemic racism, police brutality, and injustice – atrocities that tear down the health and well-being of Black communities. To be silent and to continue with business as usual is to be complicit. We as individuals and as an institution, stand with you. Black Lives Matter.

The University of California Global Health Institute advances the mission of the University of California to improve the lives of people in California and the world through our commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

Diversity is a defining feature of the University of California and we embrace it as a source of strength. Our differences — of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, socioeconomic status, abilities, experience and more — enhance our ability to achieve the university’s core missions of public service, teaching and research. We welcome faculty, staff and students from all backgrounds and want everyone at UC to feel respected and valued. >> Read the University of California statement on diversity.
