UF Epidemiology Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The Department of Epidemiology promotes diversity through our teaching, research, and service. We are committed to an inclusive environment that promotes individual and group equity and elimination of discrimination. Our students, faculty and staff are expected to treat one another with dignity, and respect regardless of gender, age, sexuality, disability, socioeconomic status, religious views, ethnicity, race, or culture. We also pledge to work continuously to make changes that will bring about an equitable and diverse academic community.

Native American Heritage Month

On August 3, 1990, President of the United States George H. W. Bush declared the month of November as National American Indian Heritage Month, thereafter commonly referred to as Native American Heritage Month. The UF Health campus is located on lands that were once home to the Timucua Tribe. Today, there are two federally recognized tribes in Florida: The Miccosukee Tribe and the Seminole Tribe of Florida.
