UF and the World

UF and Diversity

The department of Pharmaceutical Outcomes and Policy is proud of its inclusiveness and condemns racism and any other form of discrimination against social groups. Each of us individually and as members of a research community devoted to improve public health, needs to confront these threats with all our abilities. As department, we strive to recruit and support the greatest talent regardless of race, ethnicity, cultural background, religion or spiritual belief or sexual orientation. Read here how UF has re-emphasized its commitment to foster diversity and equity among its students, faculty and staff as outlined in its strategic plan with new actions against racism.
