The CUNY Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy (CUNY SPH) is committed to promoting and sustaining healthier populations in New York City and around the world through excellence in education, research, and service in public health and by advocating for sound policy and practice to advance social justice and improve health outcomes for all.

We deliver rigorous and affordable in-class and online graduate education that prepares our students for professional success. We provide access for people who have historically been excluded from higher education, celebrate the broad diversity of our community of learners, and build meaningful relationships between students and faculty that support student achievement.

As a public school of public health located in the Harlem neighborhood of New York City, we believe that responsible engagement with our surrounding communities is a priority and an essential part of our identity. We also believe that an important tenet of the school’s mission is to use our intellectual resources and talent to advance global public health efforts and improve well-being.
