Mission and Values


The Rutgers School of Public Health seeks to improve health and prevent disease in diverse populations in New Jersey and around the world through educating students to become well-qualified and effective public health leaders, researchers, and practitioners; conducting research to advance public health science and policies; and providing service programs that promote population and individual health.


In fulfilling our mission, we are guided by strong values, including:
  • high-quality performance and work products in all of our teaching, research, and service;
  • creative thinking, innovation, and discovery;
  • integrity as exemplified by ethical behavior, honesty, fairness, responsibility, and accountability;
  • respectful treatment of all individuals;
  • diversity of background and experience among our faculty, staff, and students as well as the populations we serve;
  • productive collaboration both within our school and with outside individuals and agencies; and
  • the democratic process, equal opportunity, and social justice.
