Diversity Initiatives in the School of Education, Health and Human Behavior

The School of Education, Health and Human Behavior is committed to an inclusive environment. The school's Diversity Committee pursues a variety of projects each year to ensure that our school is welcoming to underrepresented students, faculty, and staff.

Historically, members of the Diversity Committee have provided training related to LGBTQI students' needs, have assisted with efforts to mentor international students and students of color within our school, and have advised faculty about diversity-related information provided in course syllabi. To support high-needs local youth, the SEHHB also promotes SIUE student participation in the Madison County Regional Office of Education's Give 30 Mentoring Program  and the East St. Louis NAACP's ACT-SO Mentoring Program. In addition, all faculty search committees within the school include one member who is formally assigned as a diversity advocate, and all search committees use procedures designed to enhance the number and diversity of applications received for faculty positions.

For more information about the Diversity Committee and its projects, please visit the committee's website. Please note that the committee's web site is hosted by, and is not an official SIUE web site.

To obtain more information about the SEHHB's inclusion efforts, please contact Associate Dean Paul Rose.
