The Department of Public Health at Baylor University is a team of scientists committed to measuring health, promoting health equity, improving the well-being of vulnerable and underserved populations in every community, and training the next generation of public health researchers and practitioners.
We value the diversity of students, faculty, communities, and ideas, and collaborate to serve and support the health of vulnerable and underserved populations.
We are pursuing a healthier world through:
We use innovative, multidisciplinary qualitative and quantitative methods to measure health, behaviors, and environments.
We translate scientific discovery into evidence-based practice to maximize the impact of research and confront complex health challenges.
Excellence in Teaching
We facilitate learning opportunities by connecting students, communities, and research to develop practical skill sets and strengthen community capacity.
We partner with individuals and communities to achieve their health goals and foster equitable, community-engaged health opportunities.
Our strong research and practice-based approaches, global health opportunities, and low faculty-student ratios provide our students with a quality learning experience that can enhance career development. Our students often tell us they enjoy the opportunities we provide for them to learn as they serve and serve as they learn.
