The Office of Diversity, Culture, and Inclusion (ODCI) partners with Columbia Mailman students, faculty, and staff to provide opportunities to analyze and interrupt patterns of behavior and institutional practices that sustain systems of oppression at our School, Columbia University, and beyond. ODCI also maintains the Bias Response and Support System, which ensures that we hold each other and ourselves accountable to the School’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion by acknowledging and addressing bias-related concerns.
Do you have an initiative in mind to bolster the School’s commitment to equity and social justice? Are you looking for ways to respond to individual/institutional challenges that prevent our school from meeting your expectations for an inclusive and equitable community? ODCI is here to both support and challenge you, as you prepare for careers in public health.
