About this grant

Founded in 1855, Michigan State University is one of the top research universities in the world. During the grant period, the grantee will realize its goal of moving its public health program to Flint, which will become one of two flagship campuses for Michigan State University’s College of Human Medicine. The Program in Public Health is primarily online, but will support up to 500 students working on their masters of public health degree, seven research-intensive faculty who will deliver significant National Institute of Health funding, and several core medical education faculty. Research topics for the public health program have been determined based on community need and involvement, and the program is designed to be deeply embedded in the local community with positive community outcomes as a stated goal. Endowment funding will support the college’s establishment of public health research programs in Flint and support core research faculty involved in the public health program.
