Ours is a world of constant change. Social, economic, political, environmental, and other forces relentlessly challenge human health.

To achieve our strategic goals, we will need talented, committed people from diverse backgrounds guided by thoughtful and adaptive leadership and supported with financial and human resources.

Our success necessitates deep partnerships with others who share our vision of a healthier world, from community members in Baltimore to global leaders, and from those within and outside the traditional boundaries of public health. 

To set the best course for the School’s future and unleash the power of public health to champion the vulnerable and promote health equity, we have focused the plan on following five strategic goals.

We will educate leaders who can advance the public’s health by furthering the excellence of our existing programs and extending our reach beyond the walls of our School.
