Academic Centers

The School of Public Health has evolved from single-discipline departments to three multidisciplinary academic centers:


These centers were created to foster environments enriched by professionals from diverse disciplines and that solve problems as part of a team.  Whether between health professions, public health disciplines, or in the work place, students must work collaboratively within multidisciplinary teams to become successful leaders.


The three academic centers serve two purposes: the strategic advancement of our three themes (global health, health equity, and faith-based learning), and the opportunity for faculty to develop in their area of expertise. Combined with the benefit of a diverse group of peers who share the same professional interests, our academic centers will enrich the way courses and programs are designed, implemented, and evaluated.
