Change your life, then change the world.

At the University of Kentucky College of Public Health, we know the odds: severe health disparities affect populations across Kentucky and around the globe. Creating change can be a long process with daunting obstacles. But we're persistent — and we bet you are too. 

Our College is a place where passionate students come together with expert faculty to fight on behalf of the most vulnerable populations. Sometimes that fight looks like advocacy. Sometimes it looks like leadership. Sometimes it looks like following the data. It always looks like dedication and resilience.

The College of Public Health offers students the knowledge, support, and real-world experience they need to expand their hearts and minds. We are champions for health, who beat the odds every day to make the world a healthier place.

Champions persist. 

Champions collaborate.

Champions create a healthier world.
