Vision

To become a nationally-recognized Center of Excellence for promoting healthy equity in health care delivery and treatment through quality community-engaged research, dissemination of findings, and student education.

Mission of the CEEHD

To promote equity and social justice in health care delivery, treatment, and outcomes by leading collaborative efforts to generate and disseminate evidence-based, policy-relevant solutions, and to educate future leaders who deliberately consider and incorporate equity and social justice in professional practice.

Goals

1. Establish the CEEHD as a nationally recognized Center of Excellence
    in health disparities focused on equity and social justice in health
    care delivery, treatment, and outcomes.

a. Increase the role of the CEEHD in promoting research and
    scholarship by leading research projects in this area.

b. Increase the role of the CEEHD in promoting research and
    scholarship by supporting faculty and student research at
    WSSU.

2. Identify opportunities to directly engage in the local and regional
    community to educate on and address health disparities.

3. Secure diverse sources of funding support for the CEEHD and
    gradually reduce its dependence on internal support from WSSU.

4. Support WSSU’s overall strategic plan objectives to infuse equity
    into the curriculum.
