Spring 2023


In spring 2023, the College of Health and Human Services (CHHS) launched a new lunch and learn series called “Take a bite out of health disparities.” Speakers, internal and external to CHHS, are invited to lead informal conversations about four specialty topics to address the myriad of individual, environmental, and social factors that contribute to these various health disparities. We also discuss the intersectionality of race, gender, and sexual identity. The goal is to teach faculty, staff, and students in health services their role in teaching compassionate care. We will expand this series in 2023-2024 by adding new topics and an assessment component.


Betty Dennis, Director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the College of Health and Human Services, was a recipient of one of the 2023 WMU Assessment Mini Grants, awarded to conduct research on assessment of learning outcomes. Attached is the final report from the research project.
