The USF College of Public Health was created by the Florida legislature 25 years ago to provide leadership for the Florida public health system through the development of academic programs and by serving as a resource for Florida public health officials.  Since that time, the College has awarded graduate degrees and certificates to over 3,000 public health professionals and nearly 300 undergraduates have taken advantage of a new public health minor.  Over our first 25 years, our faculty have generated over $275 million in external funding for research and supporters and friends have built an endowment of over $13 million.  College faculty conduct research around the major public health challenges of our time and engage in active community-based research and service learning in the true spirit of public health – recognizing that it is not only through discovery and learning but through the direct translation and application of that knowledge to policies and programs that we succeed in improving the public’s health.  Today we are recognized leaders in distance learning, in social marketing, in maternal and child health and in global infectious disease research.  For 25 years, public health has been our passion and our promise.  Join us in celebrating our beginnings and rejoicing in our future.
