History[edit]

In September 2006, the chancellor of The City University of New York, Matthew Goldstein, announced that CUNY planned to create a collaborative School of Public Health to open within five years. The school would have an urban focus and bring together the University’s public health programs at Brooklyn, Lehman and Hunter Colleges and the Graduate Center, as well as other faculty with relevant expertise from around the University. The chancellor designated Hunter College as the lead institution because it had the largest and oldest public health program, accredited by the Council on Education for Public Health, the national body that accredits public health programs and schools, since 1972.

In October 2009, the Council on Education for Public Health accepted CUNY’s application to be reviewed for transforming its accredited programs in public health into a single School of Public Health. That review process began 2010 and was completed in 2011.

In September 2013, Ayman El-Mohandes was named Dean.[3]

In November 2015, the CUNY Trustees approved a new structure for the CUNY School of Public Health, setting in motion the transition from a consortial model comprising programs at four different CUNY schools, into the unified CUNY Graduate School of Public Health & Health Policy.
