While NYU has granted degrees in public health for over 40 years, CGPH is young with big aspirations. Our mission is to promote health and to advance health equity by cultivating and inspiring public health scholars, practitioners and leaders to engage in action-oriented initiatives that span disciplinary and geographic
It has been said that New York City is “where the future comes to audition.” Unbound by tradition, and much like the innovative and enterprising city in which our home campus resides, our college seeks to reinvent the public health paradigm by applying entrepreneurial approaches to public health crises. We do this via a unique interdisciplinary model that spans across eight schools within NYU and a globally-networked university with academic centers and portal campuses on six continents.
The CGPH has a bold vision - to significantly improve the health of populations around the world. That vision reflects a core belief that global health is not merely a field of study, area of research, or a career; but a goal. Achieving grand goals requires both seriousness of purpose and willingness to take action, and at NYU we believe that investing in committed people and essential resources will bring us closer to addressing the global health problems of today and tomorrow.
We invite you to share our vision - whether you are a student, alumni, practitioner or just interested in global health. To learn more about the CGPH and its vision, we invite you to get involved:

The NYU College of Global Public Health crosses disciplinary boundaries to address the world’s most pressing health problems. Drawing from resources across NYU’s schools, the Institute delivers truly interdisciplinary public health education at the undergraduate, master’s and doctoral level. The Institute also supports cutting-edge and collaborative research on public health issues around the world.

CGPH benefits from the participation of many of NYU's schools, including:
On June 8, 2015, the Board of Trustees of New York University (NYU) approved the formation of our new College of Global Public Health.
The governing body of the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH), the nationally-recognized accrediting body for schools and programs in public health, formally acted at its June 15-18, 2016, meeting to begin the process for CGPH to become an accredited college, one that is expected to be complete within the standard two-year process.
