Tuskegee University


TU landscape

MPH students enrolled at Tuskegee University have the unique opportunity to engage with faculty that have significant work experience addressing the needs of marginalized communities in the United States and many countries around the globe. Housed in the only veterinary medical program within an Historically Black Institution, our students are grounded in one health strategies as well as other community based participatory methodologies.

As the public health profession seeks to develop meaningful interventions for rural and other underserved populations, Tuskegee University’s MPH program requires faculty mentored student led integrated learning experiences that address a rural health problem that has been identified by community partners. Grounded in the teachings of Dr. Frederick Patterson third President (1935-1955) of Tuskegee Institute (now Tuskegee University), Founder of the United Negro College Fund (1944), recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom (1987) from President Ronald Regan and the founder of Tuskegee University College of Veterinary Medicine (TUCVM) our students are developed to be change agents and to approach all endeavors sustained by their training and commitment to make the world a better place in which to live.
