University of Georgia School of Health Sciences and Public Health, Georgia

The College of Public Health at the University of Georgia was established in 2005 in response to the compelling need to address important health concerns in Georgia.

During its first decade, the College has experienced the establishment of a highly productive research culture with total active research funding in excess of $30 million and continuous creation of new academic programs that now serve 900 students. Originally housed in seven different locations on the UGA campus, the College is the largest program located at the UGA Health Sciences Campus (HSC) in terms of enrollment, funding for research and actual space occupied by its faculty and students.

The University of Georgia College of Public Health is accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH).  The Council on Education for Public Health is an independent agency recognized by the US Department of Education to accredit schools of public health and public health programs offered in settings other than schools of public health. These schools and programs prepare students for entry into careers in public health.

The College of Public Health was re-accredited by CEPH in September 2014 for a seven-year term, extending to December 30, 2021.  The College of Public Health completed a major self-study in October 2013, to prepare for re-accreditation.

The University of Georgia Health Sciences Campus (HSC), which has become a central location and historic home for the College of Public Health, is a 58-acre property located between Prince and Oglethorpe Avenues near downtown Athens, Georgia. It has a rich legacy in the Athens community. For more than 120 years, it has served students of various ages, levels and disciplines.

From 1891 to 1932, the campus served as the State Normal School, Georgia’s first teachers’ college and the historical center of what is now known as Athens’ Normaltown district. The oldest surviving buildings were built during this period, including the Carnegie Library Learning Center (CLLC). Built in 1910 with a grant from the Andrew Carnegie Foundation, the building now serves as a student center and digital library.

The campus served as the site for the U.S. Navy Supply Corps School from 1953 until 2005, when a series of federally mandated base closures paved the way for UGA to convert the historic site into the UGA Health Sciences Campus. In 2012, the College of Public Health officially held its first classes there while the College’s department of epidemiology and biostatistics became the first UGA unit to call the new campus home.

Now with more than 200 faculty and staff, 900 students and more than $30 million in active research funding, the College is the cornerstone of the campus in terms of enrollment and research funding.
