Our Mission

The mission of the UMD Public Health program is to protect, maintain, and enhance health and quality of life through excellence in education, research, and community engagement. We prepare students to assess, plan, implement, evaluate, and manage programs that benefit individuals and communities, while communicating and advocating for health and the public health profession. Our faculty, staff, and students work as a team to develop professional, caring leaders who are committed to protecting and promoting the health of individuals, families, and communities.
