Moving Up the Ranks

minute read

The Colorado School of Public Health (ColoradoSPH) has been ranked #16 by U.S. News & World Report for graduate programs in public health. The rankings were announced publicly on April 9. Previously, ColoradoSPH had been ranked #17.

As a newer school of public health, founded in 2008, ColoradoSPH, has risen steadily through the ranks from #35 to #16 in just 15 short years. The rankings of more than 200 schools and programs of public health are based on expert opinions about program excellence and other statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school's faculty, research, and students.

“I am extraordinarily proud of the students, faculty, and staff at the Colorado School of Public Health,” said Dean Cathy Bradley. She continued, “Excellence in education, innovation, collaboration, and partnership transcend our campus’, and today our school community has been recognized for its steady progress and success.”

This improved ranking comes on the heels of ColoradoSPH passing the preliminary portion of its Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) reaccreditation. ColoradoSPH met all 43 CEPH categories, which is the best possible outcome.

With its new vision of Public Health Elevated. Rising Together for a Healthier Future for All, ColoradoSPH is undergoing the finalization of its five-year strategic plan to ensure the next five years are focused on tackling the biggest public health issues – climate health, mental health, chronic disease, and creating a robust pipeline for public health professionals by educating a well-educated and well-training workforce.

The Colorado School of Public Health is one of the only tri-institutional public health schools in the country and the only school of public health in Colorado and the Rocky Mountain Region. Leveraging the power of three leading institutions—the University of Colorado (CU) Anschutz Medical Campus, Colorado State University (CSU), and the University of Northern Colorado (UNC)—to advance public health locally, nationally, and globally. Each of the three universities offer different programs and cultures.
