Bloomberg School Again Ranked #1 School of Public Health


Dear Colleagues and Friends,

I’m pleased to share the good news that the Bloomberg School has again been named the top public health school in the nation by U.S. News & World Report. We have held the #1 spot for 27 years—ever since the rankings began in 1994. The Bloomberg School begins this year well-positioned to advance public health. 

This honor recognizes you—whether you are a member of our faculty, a student, staff, alum, or friend of the School. It is testament to your dedication and unending work in support of our collective vision to unleash the lifesaving power of public health.

We should all be proud that the entire field of public health has stepped up to address the greatest public health crisis in our lifetime. And the Bloomberg School community has been at the forefront in laboratories, cities, government, the media, and, of course, on Zoom. Here are just 20 of the many ways that our School made a difference last year.

Honors like this are wonderful, but our eyes are on the future. We have so much to contribute not only in response to the pandemic and its aftermath, but to the many other public health challenges that persist here in Baltimore, the U.S., and the world.

With the growing recognition of the value of public health and the hope for increased investment in public health, our School is already rising to meet these challenges with groundbreaking science and discoveries to help a world in sore need of hope.

We sincerely appreciate this honor from our peers in public health and look forward to working with them to fulfill the promise of public health.
