Your Impact

Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health is committed to providing a world-class education to our students so that our graduates can tackle today’s public health challenges—among the most pressing and complex in human history.

Training the Next Generation

The School attracts top students from around the world who bring with them an intense curiosity, a wealth of experience; a spectrum of backgrounds, cultures, and ideas; a dedication to excellence; and a shared passion to promote health in all segments of society. Financial support for scholarships is critical in ensuring equitable access to world-class public health education and a richer experience for all students.

Our faculty has been and continues to be at the leading edge of research in the field, among the first in the world to address the international impacts of HIV/AIDS, identifying the health effects of air pollutants, and advancing knowledge on climate change as a threat to human health. They collaborate across the University to bridge theory and practice, putting their ideas into action to take on urgent public health issues in New York City, across the U.S., and around the world. Support for their teaching and vital research helps ensure Columbia Mailman stays at the forefront of thought leadership, innovation, and solutions—and, in turn, helps create a brighter, healthier future for all.
