The Ubuntu Center on Racism, Global Movements, and Population Health Equity

Ubuntu Center team members at Drexel Square

Aligned with the Dornsife School of Public Health’s commitment to social justice and health as a human right, the mission of The Ubuntu Center on Racism, Global Movements, and Population Health Equity is to unite diverse partners to generate and translate evidence, accelerate antiracism solutions, and transform the health of communities locally, nationally, and globally.

Uniting diverse partners involves bringing together a vibrant mix of activists, environmentalists, researchers, and community residents—especially those historically excluded within the Academy—whose range of perspectives, expertise, and experience will mobilize our strengths and capacities.

The Center's aim in this regard is to provide the platform and organizational infrastructure to advance collective anti-racism scholarship, training, and action.

Visit The Ubuntu Center's website to learn more about current activities and meet the inaugural Ubuntu Movement Fellows.

The Ubuntu Center was made possible through the generosity of Dana and David Dornsife. Learn more about their gift to our school.
