“UCLA acknowledges the Tongva peoples as the traditional land caretakers of the Los Angeles basin. As a land grant institution, we pay our respects to the ancestors, elders and relations of the past, present and emerging.”
The UCLA Fielding School of Public Health's Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion and the FSPH Diversity Committee, which is comprised of students, staff, and faculty, consulted broadly and identified six priorities for addressing anti-racism and creating a culture of inclusion within our community. The priority areas are: (1) Pathways, (2) Recruitment, (3) Community, (4) Belonging, (5) Training, and (6) Infrastructure. Based on this input, the Fielding School has prioritized the development of programing that will address the interpersonal and intrapersonal needs of our community—specifically developing a foundation for addressing systemic inequality within and outside of the school.
Listed below are the Fielding School's priorities for addressing and eradicating racism and anti-blackness within our community:
The strategies and programs that will achieve the above priorities will use best practices in EDI programming, partnerships with campus and community experts, philanthropy, and programs that promote community values within the context of the Fielding School’s mission and strategic goals.
