Message from the ODI Staff

Welcome to the Office of Diversity & Inclusion website and welcome back students!  We’re excited for a new year, which brings new possibilities. We hope that you not only explore the site, but that you have the opportunity to visit us in person in our new home at 677 Huntington Ave. Please join us for our Open House on Wednesday, September 16th from 12:30-2:00!

There are a few changes in the Office this year, which we are excited to share. We started the year off with a move from Wigglesworth to Kresge and are now located in the Student Services Suite, Kresge G4 (beneath the cafeteria). In August, we welcomed our new Director of Inclusion Programs, Dr. Kim Truong who joins us from Harvard College. And lastly, in conjunction with the Office of Education, we are welcoming a new Community Engagement Director, Ra’Shaun Nalls, who we are eager to partner with!

You’ll also notice that we’ve changed our site a bit. You will find information on how to get involved in some of our current programs on the “Get Involved” section of the website.  Here you’ll  find information on the student ambassadors, Youth in Public Health Conference and other opportunities.  We also offer recruitment and pipeline opportunities and here you can find out about programming and opportunities for individuals interested in pursuing public health. And lastly, we have pages that provide information on course work, faculty research and resources all related to diversity and inclusion.

Please feel free to reach out to any member of our dedicated staff about the programs, services, and activities provided by our Office.

Happy exploring!

Meredith, Felisa, Kim & Venus
