Public Health Anti-Racism banner

As part of UCR Healthy Campus’s commitment to health and well-being, equity and creating cultures of health for our UCR students, faculty and staff, we are establishing a subcommittee focused on addressing racism as a public health issue.

Public Health Anti-Racism Forum

Healthy Campus and The Well in partnership with the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion held a Forum on August 20, 2020. The purpose of the forum was to gather feedback from a wide variety of UCR stakeholders, including staff, students, and faculty, to:

  • inform the goals and direction of the subcommittee,
  • gather ideas on projects and actions for the subcommittee, and
  • to open membership of the subcommittee to participants.

We would like to thank the 157 participants who attended the Forum and contributed their expertise and energy!

Our mission is to continue ongoing efforts and initiatives to create a culture of health and well-being that recognizes the systemic oppression and racism that affects structurally vulnerable populations and celebrates diversity, strives for health equity, and healthy working and learning environments.
