The Rutgers School of Public Health is proud to announce it’s 2020-2025 Strategic Plan.
For more than three decades, Rutgers has been a leader in meeting the needs of New Jersey’s public health workforce, placing well-trained practitioners in the state’s urban, suburban, and rural communities. Since its alignment within Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences in 2013, there has also been a growing national acknowledgment of the public health scholarship emanating from the School which has coincided with a rapidly expanding cohort of MPH and fully funded, full-time doctoral students. In fact, new student enrollments have increased by over 70 percent in the past few years, fueled by new academic offerings at the School’s New Brunswick location and, more recently, in Newark.
During Academic Year 2018-19, under the leadership of Rutgers School of Public Health Dean, Dr. Perry N. Halkitis, we have worked with faculty, students, and staff to realign our mission, vision, values, and goals to ensure we are truly meeting the 21st century public health needs of the populations we serve through our scholarship, teaching and community engagement, locally, nationally and globally.
It is with great pleasure that we now share with you our “living” strategic plan that will guide our efforts over the next 5 years.Tags: Friday Letter Submission, Publish on September 13
