Rothenberger Institute

The Rothenberger Institute equips college students—at the University of Minnesota and beyond—with the knowledge and skills to live health lives through evidence-informed, inclusive, and engaging online health and wellness curriculum.


Our two summer institutes allow you to enhance your knowledge of public health or focus on a special area of practice. Our institutes are for students, alumni, and public health professionals.

Summer Public Health Institute

The Summer Public Health Institute offers a course for everyone practicing in or studying public health or fields related to public health. Participants can expand their professional expertise, broaden career options, network with other professionals, or explore a new area of interest. The Institute takes place in late May–early June.

Summer Institute in Biostatistics

The Summer Institute in Biostatistics (SIBS) runs for six weeks in June and July. This program is designed to help students pursue a career in the field, providing a foundation in biostatistics, epidemiology, and statistical computing.
