The School of Public Health at the University of Minnesota consistently ranks among the top 10 in the country.
Through our education, research, and community outreach, we focus on improving the health of populations.
The goal is to prevent disease. And collaboration is key.
We work with schools inside the University of Minnesota, plus partner with institutions across the country to take on important issues affecting community health, environmental health, health policy, and biostatistics.
Ultimately, these partnerships mean better preventative care for people in Minnesota and around the world. Our experts are involved in numerous projects that will make a big difference. Examples include:
- Our researchers seek to answer important questions about Minnesota mine workers and lung health through the Minnesota Taconite Workers Health Study.
- School of Public Health experts are teaming with other Academic Health Center schools in a multidisciplinary effort to combat emerging pandemics in developing countries.
The School of Public Health’s commitment to excellence shows in the significant growth of our school. In the last 6 years, enrollment has more than doubled. And in just 4 years, faculty size has increased by 37%.
Our faculty members are among the leading experts in public health today. They are regularly sought after by national and international media to provide perspective on some of the world’s most troubling public health problems, like infectious disease and obesity.
