Welcome to the Department of Public Health. This section contains all the information for current students, faculty, and staff.



Program Mission Statement: The mission of the Southern Connecticut State University Public Health Programs is to advance the state of public health practice and to promote and protect the health of the public.


Public Heath Anti-Racism Statement: In light of recent events, your public health faculty writes today in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and stands against racism in all forms. As a Department and as a profession of public health, we are committed to social justice and anti-racism and, thus, we are angry and we are saddened by the injustices related to the pandemic and the recent racial violence that has taken the lives of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and countless others. We are committed to working alongside the Black community in the Black Lives Matter movement and all communities of color to dismantle systems of oppression that target communities in Connecticut and everywhere. We are committed to you in this journey, as we work together to ensure conditions that allow all people to have a fair and just opportunity to thrive across the lifespan.
