Bloomberg School Retains Top Ranking from U.S. News & World Report


Dear Colleagues and Friends,

I’m pleased to share the news that the Bloomberg School has once again been named the top public health school in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.

We are honored by this year’s ranking. Our School’s strength comes from you—our faculty, students, staff, alumni and friends who work every day with deep dedication and fierce urgency to save lives and improve health worldwide.

Your commitment is the root of our achievement.

We’re grateful for the attention these rankings bring to the School’s mission. And our eyes are on the future. Our new strategic plan for the School, The Power of Public Health, sets a course to help us achieve our shared vision of a healthier world for all. Together, we will continue to work deliberately and passionately to ensure that the value of the public health approach to solving today’s health challenges is both understood and practiced for the greatest impact.

Our success will depend on our own focused efforts and, importantly, our collaborations with our fellow public health schools and programs, whose achievements we also celebrate today. Now more than ever, dedication to the science and practice of public health is critical for the world.

Thank you for joining us in this most important mission. I look forward to seeing what we’ll accomplish as we continue working together toward our vision of protecting health and saving lives—millions at a time.

We will celebrate our ranking and ongoing work together at a gathering in Feinstone Hall on March 26. Details to follow.
