Binghamton University's Global Public Health program combines the perspectives of public health (the science of understanding disease causation, preventing disease, and improving individual health with population-level programs, policies, and activities) and global health (the art and science of implementing public health on a global scale, with special attention to phenomena that transcend international borders, and those that particularly compromise the health of disadvantaged groups, in low- and high-income nations alike). The program's focus is on providing transdisciplinary training for students broadly interested in health and particularly interested in disease prevention.
Diversity, equity, and inclusion are critical global public health concerns and are at the core of the Global Public Health program's teaching and research goals. The Global Public Health program and Binghamton University are committed to attracting and retaining a diverse faculty, staff, and student body, and to honoring the experiences, perspectives, and unique identities of all of our faculty and students. Candidates for this position should describe how they will actively contribute to our mission of advancing a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion through their research, teaching, mentoring, and service, and through their engagement with fellow faculty, students, and staff.
