The College of Public Health and Human Sciences is pleased to present our strategic plan 2018-2023. This plan represents over two years of thoughtful and collaborative work by a core team of more than 60 individuals with input and feedback from hundreds more college faculty, staff and students.
The purpose of the plan is to orient the work that we all do toward commonly identified goals, and I am happy to report that such work has already begun. New areas of research with a focus on collaborative and translational research are being developed; new degree programs that will prepare our students for the 21st century workplace have been proposed; novel programs to increase student success are being put in place; the Dean’s Advisory Committee has been established to facilitate dialogue between CPHHS faculty, staff, students and the dean; and exciting new global health and community-based research projects, which include a youth and family mental health initiative, are being developed.
All of this work, and much more to come, is focused on championing the discovery and implementation of ideas that advance the lifelong wellness of people and communities as part of OSU’s integrated health sciences initiative.
Whether you are a current, prospective or former student, CPHHS employee or friend, our success is possible only with your engagement. Thank you for sharing our vision of lifelong health and well-being for every person, every family and every community in Oregon and beyond.
