COHS Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Misson:

The College of Health Sciences [COHS] aims to exemplify, increase, and celebrate diversity, equity, and inclusion [DEI] among students, staff, and faculty at Sam Houston State University. The COHS DEI Committee works to educate, support, and guide students, staff, and faculty on how to put DEI principles into practice.

Vision:

The College of Health Sciences will form a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive campus that empowers students to build a more diverse, equitable, inclusive, and healthier world.


“As an attorney, my work to stop discrimination was reactive, but as an educator and administrator, I’m afforded the opportunity to focus on prevention through the teaching and promotion of diversity, equity, and inclusion on campus and beyond.”


Interim Assistant Dean of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, Christine Cardinal

“Building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive college community is not the work of a moment. It requires sustained commitment, transparency, intentional effort, and the attention of us all.”


Interim Dean of the College of Health Sciences, Emily Roper
