About the College of Public Health
The University of Iowa College of Public Health is a comprehensive public health resource for the state of Iowa, the nation, and the world. Ranked among the nation’s top 10 publicly-supported schools of public health, the college combines outstanding educational programs, an entrepreneurial and well-funded research enterprise, and extensive community engagement.
Founded in 1999, the College of Public Health is the newest college at the University of Iowa, and the only accredited school of public health in the state of Iowa. The college’s 80 primary faculty are based in five academic departments: biostatistics, community and behavioral health, epidemiology, health management and policy, and occupational and environmental health. More than 400 students are enrolled in the college’s highly successful and well-established graduate programs: the Master of Public Health, Master of Health Administration, Master of Science, and Doctor of Philosophy. A new undergraduate program began enrolling bachelor’s degree students in fall 2016.
The college’s highly productive research enterprise is fueled by a resourceful spirit and strong research infrastructure, including an array of well-established and multi-disciplinary federal research centers, strong partnerships with state agencies, numerous pilot grant programs that nurture exploratory research, robust faculty mentoring initiatives, and a campus culture of collaboration.
As Iowa, the United States, and the world confront fundamental challenges connected to health — such as an aging population and other major demographic and economic shifts, climate change, increasing globalization, and the emergence of new infectious diseases — the faculty, students, and staff of the college are dedicated to addressing these grand challenges and assuming a leadership role in shaping the future of public health.
