The College of Public Health is ranked first in Ohio and 19th in the nation among 190 public health schools and programs accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health, according to the U.S. News & World Report 2023 edition of America’s Best Graduate Schools. The college previously ranked 24th in the nation.

"This improvement in our ranking is a reflection not only of the stellar education students can expect here but of the work we’ve done to engage deeply in important, often difficult, national conversations about pressing public health issues," said Dean Amy Fairchild.

The college’s specialty program in health care management — the Master of Health Administration — was also ranked 1st in the state and 7th overall in the most recent analysis of those programs.
