EnHIP Mission Statement


The mission of the Environmental Health Information Partnership is to enhance the capacity of minority serving academic institutions to reduce health disparities through the access, use and delivery of environmental health information on their campuses and in their communities.

Assumptions: Environmental health refers to the impact of chemical, microbial, physical, and radiological agents on the health of living organisms.

Minority serving educational institutions are those served by programs funded under Title III Historically Black Colleges and Universities, American Indian Tribally Controlled Colleges and Universities, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian Serving Institutions, and Title V Hispanic Serving Institutions.
