Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

In alignment with the University of New Hampshire’s Diversity Statement, Health & Wellness is fully committed to building and nurturing an environment of inclusive excellence where all students, staff, and faculty can thrive. 

Health & Wellness recognizes there can be no health, and no wellness, without social justice. We are committed to confronting health disparities, providing open and inclusive access to health and wellness services and programming, and delivering the highest quality care to all. Our services and approaches are evidence-based and trauma-informed, and embrace intersectionality, identity, and the many experiences of our community members that make them uniquely themselves.

Our staff values and utilizes self-examination, professional development, and feedback to ensure continued growth. We strive to contribute to a campus environment that fosters safety, health, agency, autonomy, mutual respect, and understanding. We believe diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion are foundational values inextricably linked to achieving our core mission of promoting the health and well-being of all members of the UNH community.

Here, you belong, and all are welcome.


University of New Hampshire Land Acknowledgement

As we all journey on the trail of life, we wish to acknowledge the spiritual and physical connection the Pennacook, Abenaki and Wabanaki Peoples have maintained to N’dakinna (homeland) and the aki (land), nibi (water), lolakwikak (flora) and awaasak (fauna) that the University of New Hampshire community is honored to steward today. We also acknowledge the hardships they continue to endure after the loss of unceded homelands and champion the university’s responsibility to foster relationships and opportunities that strengthen the well-being of the Indigenous People who carry forward the traditions of their ancestors.
