Accreditation Seal | Council on Education for Public HealthAs Oregon’s first accredited College of Public Health and Human Sciences, we take on our greatest challenges to health, using science and community engagement to ensure health and well-being for individuals, families and communities in Oregon and beyond.

We're also growing. Since 2009, we have added more than 40 new faculty members, who train the next generation of public health and human sciences professionals and advance science through teaching, research, scholarship and creativity. These faculty, including 12 who are endowed, support a growing student body in a world in which three times the number of current public health graduates is needed to meet the needs of the future.

In addition to its growth and interdisciplinary focus on health across the lifespan, the college is a standout among other schools and colleges of public health because outreach – in the form of the OSU Extension Service – is built in. In addition to being one of only a handful of schools of public health at a land grant institution, it is one of only a select few with this level of connection to communities.
