Campus Community,

The College of Public Health strives to improve public health in the Commonwealth and beyond by developing leaders, conducting innovative research to strengthen practice, training students to lead a dynamic public health workforce, addressing public health challenges and empowering people to mobilize communities to improve public health. This is possible due to all your hard work and passion. 

I am pleased to announce that a national search process for a permanent dean of the College of Public Health will begin in September.

All recommendations and justifications are treated confidentially. 

If you would like to nominate yourself or someone else to serve on the search advisory committee, please click here. If you have any questions, please contact Shavonna Ross, director of operations ( Please submit your nominations by Wednesday, August 23, at 5 p.m.
