About the Colorado School of Public Health
The mission of the Colorado School of Public Health is to promote the physical, mental, social and environmental health of people and communities in the Rocky Mountain Region and globally. The mission will be accomplished through collaborations in education, population-based research, and community service that bring together institutions, agencies and diverse populations.
The Colorado School of Public Health is uniquely defined by our history, collaborative identity and collective strengths. Each day our faculty, students, alumni, and community partners work together to fulfill a commitment to protect and promote health across Colorado, nationally, and globally. Our history in collaborative partnership is defining our future.
The University of Northern Colorado (UNC) is located in Greeley in northern Colorado, and is one of Forbes Magazine's top places to live in the U.S. It is a campus big enough to offer opportunities in a community small enough to make you feel at home.
Our program at UNC offers an MPH in Community Health Education, an MPH in Healthy Aging & Community Health Education, and an MPH in Global Health & Community Health Education, as well as a Certificate in Public Health Sciences. These concentrations prepare students to work effectively with diverse communities to identify needs and strengths, as well as develop healthy individuals and communities.
UNC MPH Beyond Class
Our program has a closed Facebook page for department-related information, social events, and an open forum for current students and alumni to post; it's a great way to be connected beyond the classroom setting. If you are interested in joining the group, please send an e-mail request to KC Hall.
The Colorado School of Public Health is the first and only accredited school of public health in the Rocky Mountain West and has received full accreditation by the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH).

“I loved the fact that its 3 campuses combined into one and you have the opportunity to take classes on all campuses. My Concentration was Community Health Education, but I could enhance my focus in worksite wellness by taking electives on all campuses.”
