College of Health

Everyone has a role to play in making the world a healthier place for all.

We are at the forefront of addressing complex challenges to population health and well-being. Backed by science, community engagement and more than a century of experience tackling urgent challenges, our work has never been more vital.

This includes training the next generation of public health and human sciences leaders, who grow their passions into purposeful careers that make a difference in a world in which three times the number of current public health graduates is needed to meet the needs of the future.

There are a number of ways to make a difference and support our work, from changing a student’s life through a scholarship or giving to specialized funds that support IMPACT, the Dean’s Fund for Excellence and more.
