Occupational & Environmental Health Mission & Vision Statement


Our mission is to understand and solve challenges to occupational and environmental health through innovative education, research, and service.  We apply physical science, social science, and translational science to anticipate, assess, and mitigate occupational and environmental hazards that may endanger human health.  We prepare practitioners and researchers for careers creating healthier, safer workplaces and protecting the environment.


We will be a leading applied research and education program for occupational and environmental health. The work of our faculty and graduates will reduce the burden of occupational and environmental hazards on human health and lead to a healthier population and environment.
