The Center for Community Health and Development at the University of Kansas acknowledges that the University of Kansas resides on the ancestral territory of several tribal nations, including the Kaw, Osage, and Shawnee peoples. Specifically, the University occupies land taken from these nations.
This land acknowledgement recognizes that Native Americans are traditional guardians of the land and that there is an enduring relationship between Native peoples and these traditional territories.
As a Center, we are committed to fostering an inclusive and equitable environment that values and respects the diverse experiences, identities, and perspectives of all individuals. A full diversity statement is available from the Center for Community Health and Development.
