The School of Public Health, formerly known as the School of Community Health Sciences, was established in 2004 and is dedicated to improving the health and well-being of people worldwide. Our departments, programs, and research units work to provide a diverse education, practical training experience and numerous community involvement opportunities to prepare students to become leaders and professionals in the field of public health.

The School of Public Health is the first and only accredited School of Public Health in Nevada, and as of 2019, it is one of only 66 in the world with this distinction by the Council on Education for Public Health.
