Welcome

The Office of Practice and Workforce Development focuses on the application of didactically acquired knowledge in the practice environment and will provide students with comprehensive public health practical program support for all College of Public Health curriculum.

The Office will establish and sustain relationships with the public health practice community and work with the community to develop local, national, and international experiential opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students within the College of Public Health. By going outside traditional academic settings, students gain a greater understanding and appreciation of what they are learning in the classroom.
