Our Year in Review

Nurturing Big Ideas

In 2018, we welcomed F. DuBois Bowman, whose tenure as the 12th dean of the School of Public Health began in October. And we offered our sincerest thanks to Cathleen Connell for her incredible service to the school as Interim Dean. We also welcomed new departmental chairs Dana Dolinoy and Bhramar Mukherjee and new senior associate dean for administration Lynda Lisabeth.

Online Education

In March, we announced our intention to develop an online MPH launching Fall 2019. And on July 1, we became the regional public health training center for Region V.

Building a Better Future

In November, we thanked 11,679 incredibly generous donors for over $110 million in support, part of the university’s record-shattering Victors for Michigan Campaign. And thanks to community partners and alumni collaborators, we held our second annual Service Day in March.

Student organizations won awards and blazed new trails. We visited Ethiopia, Kenya, and Guatemala to explore research partnerships.

Together with you, we continue to bring our best to the tasks at hand—seeking solutions to the most pressing problems in public health and communicating the value of public health to the many communities we engage.
