  • The PhD in Population Health Sciences is proud of the vast diversity that all our students bring to their PhD pursuits and of the contributions that they make within our program, their fields of study, Harvard Chan, Griffin GSAS, Harvard University, and our surrounding communities – locally in Greater Boston, nationally, and internationally.
  • We believe that it is imperative for our cohorts and overall program to reflect the diversity of the communities in which we conduct our research and for whom we hope to provide sustainable service and measurable impact.
  • We are committed to ensuring that there are better pathways, stronger supports, and clearer opportunities for all applicants and students within PHS.
  • We also recognize that while we do A LOT to recruit and/or ‘sell’ our program based on its and Harvard’s intrinsic merits (many noted on the following slides), we also realize that unless we provide the necessary supports and resources, we cannot fully succeed in this work, and we will not find our true success as a program – and that not to do so would only make us complicit in furthering societal racism and hold us back from the successes we are committed to achieving – together – as one PHS.
