For four consecutive years, we rank No. 1 per capita (grant monies awarded per faculty member) at the university, making the school the most fiscally productive unit on campus. We’re also the most productive per capita school of any U.S. public health school within a public university.
We experienced six consecutive years of record student enrollment, more than doubling our student body in that period. Currently, we have more than 1,300 students who work with 128 faculty members.
