About the Dornsife School of Public Health
The Dornsife School of Public Health at Drexel University is the only CEPH-accredited school of public health in the Philadelphia area, and recently received a $45 million gift to expand the faculty and build new research and educational programs. Important themes of the Dornsife School include improving health in cities, eliminating health disparities, and promoting health in all policies. The School offers unique and exciting opportunities for interdisciplinary research and training in population health generally, including a new Urban Health Collaborative aimed at promoting innovations in research, training, and policy to improve health in cities both locally and globally.
With more than 8,000 employees and 22,000 students, Drexel University is the 16th largest private university in the nation. It includes 10 colleges and three schools offering degrees in engineering, architecture, media arts design, business, law, medicine, nursing, and public health, among others. The University’s goal to become “the most civically engaged university in America” drives its work with the City of Philadelphia and diverse community partners.
Drexel’s 74-acre University City campus is located in the University City district of Philadelphia, which it shares with two other universities a science center, and thousands of students. Philadelphia is vibrant, culturally diverse and historically rich, featuring numerous cultural, educational, medical and recreational resources. Situated along the Northeast Corridor between New York and Washington, D.C., Drexel’s location within the Delaware Valley makes it part of a larger tapestry with a strong intellectual tradition in a quickly changing environment very much in need of the expertise of the faculty and students that call Drexel home. In addition to Drexel’s University City campus, students are educated at its Center City Hahnemann Campus and Queen Lane Medical Campus in Philadelphia.
Drexel University is an equal opportunity affirmative action employer. The Dornsife School of Public Health is especially interested in qualified candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of our academic community.
