This is the right place and the right time to be part of the future of public health – in the College of Public Health and Human Sciences.
Watch the video above to hear from faculty members who have come from across the nation to help lead the newly accredited college into the future.
“Accreditation means that we’re on the national stage, and it means value added for both our students as well as ourselves,” says Assistant Professor Molly Kile.
“I was so excited about the chance to join the College of Public Health and Human Sciences because it has the right combination of world-class expertise in core areas of human development and family sciences, nutrition, physical activity and environment – things that we know are critical to improving health,” says PHHS Director of External Relations and Endowed Chair Gloria Krahn.
“Accreditation means better visibility and recognition of who we are and what we do, and we do a lot,” says Professor Sunil Khanna.
“What is so exciting about the College of Public Health and Human Sciences is that it has Extension built in, and Extension is all about hands-on education,” says PHHS Extension and Public Health Practice faculty Ana Lu Fonseca. “The fact that the College of Public Health and Human Sciences is the only college in the state that is accredited is huge. People from all over the world will be looking at Oregon for this college, and that’s huge for the community.”
