While our School of Public Health launched in 2007, we are built upon a foundation of disciplines that have a long and rich history at the University of Maryland. As such, we celebrate the thousands of Terps who have graduated from our legacy departments as well as our recent SPH alumni. We welcome you, as well as our many friends and colleagues, to engage in School of Public Health activities and to explore ways to support our growth and success.

Grounded in the philosophy that health starts where we live, learn, work and play, the University of Maryland School of Public Health partners with communities and applies research to promote health, advance health equity and create policies that will enhance health across the lifespan. We conduct research in local communities to improve food access, reduce HIV/AIDS and prevent chronic disease, among other goals. We also maximize the impact of our research through collaborations with a variety of community organizations, academic partners, state and local health departments, and other public health agencies.
