University of Minnesota



Founded in 1944, the University of Minnesota School of Public Health improves the health and wellbeing of populations and communities around the world by bringing innovative research, learning, and concrete actions to today’s biggest health challenges.

Our wide array of academic programs, rich research portfolio, and strong connections to community and industry partners give our graduates a distinct advantage in competitive career environments.

Our school’s guiding belief that “Health is a Human Right” drives our work.

Our Center for Antracism Research for Health Equity is breaking new ground as it works with the community to set research agendas and push into uncharted territory around measuring and ending racism’s influence on health.

In 2021, we launched our Strategic Plan for Antiracism, a school-wide commitment to challenge racism wherever we find it. Both initiatives are already making our school a national leader in antiracism and health equity.
