Mission Statement

The Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health is dedicated to promoting the health of individuals and communities with a special emphasis on diverse populations and the Southwest.

Description

Established in January of 2000 by the Arizona Board of Regents, The University of Arizona Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health (MEZCOPH) is currently the only nationally accredited college of public health in the vast twelve-state Mountain-Pacific region that stretches from Mexico to Canada.

Located in Tucson, Arizona, MEZCOPH is one of seventeen colleges of the University of Arizona, one of the nation's leading public universities. With about 900,000 multicultural citizens, Tucson is a growing economic and recreational center that reflects the richness and diversity of the Southwest and U.S.-Mexico border regions. The College is located in the new Roy P. Drachman Hall facility, shown in the artist's drawing above, which was completed in 2006.

Serving the State of Arizona

The UA Zuckerman College of Public Health concentrates its efforts on realizing its mission of developing a collaborative academic network to serve the public health needs of Arizona. In every county, the College works to provide resources to local health promotion programs in areas such as tobacco control, diabetes prevention, environmental protection, or youth violence prevention. Further, our programs are committed to educating and training Arizona's public-health workforce to assure excellence in local leadership.

The UA Zuckerman College of Public Health offers tremendous opportunities to its students for education, research and community involvement thanks to a locale rich in history, research opportunities, and university academic resources.

Academic Divisions

The UA Zuckerman College of Public Health is organized into three academic divisions that reflect the nature of their research, teaching and practice:

Divisions serve as administrative units which coordinate teaching, research, and service within their areas of specialization. The units are academic homes for faculty, staff, and students and provide the central focus of collegial relationships within the College.

The UA Zuckerman College of Public Health provides both undergraduate and graduate education in population-based health disciplines designed to prepare students for professional and academic public-health careers.
