Our strategic plan sets our course from 2019-2024.  Strategic planning sets priorities for our School, and aligns everyone with the same future direction, simplifying decision making, and guiding our fundraising efforts.

Our strategic planning process was designed to be inclusive of UIC SPH students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community and public health partners.  Approved in by SPH faculty in 2019, our plan is centered on ensuring student success and advancing public health, and is consistent with the priorities of the University and our mission, which is as follows: 

“The UIC School of Public Health is dedicated to excellence in protecting and improving the health and well-­being of the people of the metropolitan Chicago area, the State of Illinois, and the nation, and of others throughout the world”

I would like to thank the UIC SPH faculty, staff, students, alumni, and partners for their engagement in the planning and implementation process.  I am pleased with our progress to date, and encourage everyone to harness this momentum to propel UIC SPH to a new plateau in 2024.
