The College of Public Health (CPH) alumni make up an important community of professionals whose career roots were planted at Temple but whose expertise and influence are now spanning the globe. 

Join the College of Public Health's Alumni Association

The College of Public Health Alumni Association's (CPHAA) mission is to create a meaningful partnership between CPH alumni and the college. CPHAA members serve as ambassadors, unite alumni through communication, and are engaged participants in CPH and university initiatives. All CPH alumni are lifetime, dues-free members of the alumni association.

The college’s alumni board invites all CPH graduates to deepen their alumni experience by participating in the association at the Diamond Level, which includes special offers and invitations, among other benefits.

You have a great story to tell—we want to hear it.

You can help future students select one of the many CPH programs by telling us your story. Give us your testimonial about why you chose your profession, why you chose Temple, and how your career impacts others. Have you won a grant, fellowship, national award in your field, landed a new job, pursued an additional degree, or have any other news that your fellow Owls would enjoy hearing about? Send us an email to tell us all about it.

Class of 2019: this year, we have an event just for you. As a graduate, you are now a member of the Temple University Alumni Association (TUAA), composed of more than 324,000 proud Owls! Beyond Broad is a continuation of #TUGradCountdown, but instead of counting down to Commencement, you’ll be counting down to your first Alumni Weekend and one-year reunion! This yearlong program will not only celebrate you as new alumni, but offer you special opportunities to make #TempleMade connections, discounted pricing at events, unique benefits and resources for success after college.

Support your Alma Mater

At our college, we see public health as a transdisciplinary approach to understanding the factors that shape the health of individuals and populations—as well as the ways in which those factors affect the design of healthcare and its delivery to individuals. Across 17 disciplines and 51 programs, we are advancing the cutting edge of inter-professional research and education, giving your alma mater increased visibility and national ranking that make your credentials more visible and valuable. You can give back by making a donation to the CPH Development Fund or one of our many named Scholarship Funds supporting students and faculty research projects, or through a variety of Major Gift and Planned Giving Opportunities such as bequests, securities, specialized trusts, and more. For additional information, visit our Giving page or contact the CPH Development Office. When you choose to support your alma mater, you are ensuring that future generations of students experience the educational excellence that defines Temple University.
