Diversity

At the College of Health Sciences, we are committed to building a research and educational environment that is rich with diversity that brings all the perspectives a strong academic unit needs to succeed and thrive.

- Achievements and Progress -

CHS leadership team

Faculty Recruiting

Graduate Study
Scholarships from the Robert Woods Johnson Foundation were awarded to UD School of Nursing, to give to students from diverse backgrounds who wish to pursue advanced studies in nursing
Student Population
President's Diversity Initiative awarded to Physical Therapy/KAAP to develop a mentoring program, undergraduate research program and a bridge course in Anatomy that attracts students from diverse backgrounds to the College of Health Sciences

We see diversity in research as part of the educational continuum. From K-12 pipeline programs that engage students in summer research enrichment experiences, to undergraduate research experiences, graduate training, post-doctoral training and junior faculty mentoring. Each program should open a door to the next.
