The Future of the UW School of Public Health

As the University of Washington School of Public Health begins its fifth decade, it's looking to the future—and is asking the community to take a survey to provide feedback.

June 1, 2011

As the University of Washington School of Public Health begins its fifth decade, we're looking to the future—and we want your help. Over the last six weeks, we've held dozens of meetings with faculty, staff, students and public health partners. We have collected their ideas, hopes, and dreams for the next 40 years. We've put together an online survey to gain broader feedback on the information gathered during these conversations. (You can read about the process here.)

And now we want to hear from you. What do you think are the most pressing issues the School faces: funding? lack of community? diversity? What new research areas should we focus on: aging? healthy system effectiveness? climate change? new technologies? Where do you think the School should look for additional financial support? How do you feel about the School's identity and logo? We're looking for your choices on these questions and more—14 in all. Please take our 10-minute survey and help us define the School's goals and priorities for the coming decades.
