Setting the pace

Never has the need for agile and adept public health faculty and researchers been more obvious: They set the health, economic and security agendas for society and the world. The College of Public Health is now one of the most productive and research-intensive units at Temple. With impressive and growing active research funding, our faculty are emerging as thought leaders among peers nationwide.

Meeting demand

Demand for College of Public Health degrees continues to increase, and over the last five years the college’s strength has grown through the recruitment of more than 160 remarkable faculty members. Today, because of our faculty, the College of Public Health is positioned to emerge as one of Temple University’s flagships and one of the nation’s preeminent authorities on public health education, research and practice.

A unique brand of educator

Faculty create our culture of innovation and commitment to our community. To continue to leverage our disciplinary diversity to define an integrated and advanced model of education, research and practice, we need the best and most flexible minds and people with diverse training and experiences. No other faculty in the nation integrates as many clinical and practical fields with the core disciplines of public health. Bringing them to and keeping them on our campus requires the resources to provide competitive compensation and support.
