Why is CCPH creating an MSI Hub?

In keeping with our commitment to health justice, we are launching this Hub to encourage, support, and focus on HMSIs and their vital importance to improving community health. By creating this community we expand our commitment further to the fight for health equity and social justice. 

Goal Statement:

To eliminate health disparities amongst historically marginalized communities.

Vision Statement

To advance community engagement and research initiatives led by MSIs. We fundamentally believe that by leveraging their close proximity to communities, these institutions will be at the forefront of fostering equitable access to healthcare and wellness, empowering minoritized populations, and achieving optimal health outcomes for all.

History of MSIs

Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCU), Tribal College & Universities (TCU), Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSI), and Asian-American and Pacific Islander Serving Institutions (AAPISI) all emerged in response to a history of inequity and lack of minority people’s access to historically White institutions.
