Protect and promote health.

Public health is making a difference, be a part of it. The field of public health protects and promotes health in people’s everyday lives—at home, at work, at school, and at play. Working with communities and populations, public health identifies the causes of poor health and implement large-scale solutions. In this community you will explore public health through courses, programming with students, faculty, and professionals, service activities, and community resources.

This Living Learning Community requires students to take an academic course connected to the community. You will be pre-enrolled in the LLC course, which will be included in your academic schedule prior to summer Orientation.

This community is open to all students.
