Our Voices Matter Initiative Featured in Minnesota Daily

May 1, 2018

The School of Public Health was recently featured in the Minnesota Daily for their 'Our Voices Matter' initiative, organized by the SPH student group Diversity Matters

Over the three days, organizers stood in the lobby of the Mayo Building and asked students to record positive and negative stories regarding their experiences with diversity in SPH, either on a notecard posted on the wall or deposited in a box, or through anonymous online posts.

“Collecting these stories provides us with the tools necessary to show that there are concerns, but there’s areas for improvement,” said Sabrina Roowala, one of the organizers of the event, who studies community health promotion. “Our goal is then to utilize the stories to serve as ... vignettes for faculty and staff training.”
