The Education component unifies community partners, graduate/ medical
students, and junior faculty across all colleges to access the ARCHD's
BA/MPH, and BS/MPH programs will serve to increase
under-represented minority students' (URM) interest in public health sciences as
a career option.
An active partnership with undergraduate institutions,
specifically historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) throughout the
state, is a unique and critically important part of the COPH's ongoing
commitment to work proactively, earlier in the academic 'pipeline,' to increase
the number of URM students who pursue graduate-level public health study.
Additionally, we recognize the importance of support and peer mentoring specific
to the needs of URM students to ensure student retention, advancement to
doctoral study, and a successful career transition.
