Rollins School of Public Health Ranked Third in the Nation

April 9, 2024
Rollins ranks 3rd

The Rollins School of Public Health has risen to a No. 3 ranking among all accredited schools and programs of public health in the United States in U.S. News & World Report’s 2024-2025 graduate school rankings, which were released earlier today. The reputation-based assessment is reflective of the school’s continued tradition of excellence as demonstrated by the school’s commitment to research, teaching, and academic rigor.

“We are so grateful to be recognized by our peers in this way, and to be included with so many high-quality programs, especially at a time when public health is so critical,” says M. Daniele Fallin, PhD, dean of the Rollins School of Public Health. “While we are happy with this result, rankings are but one of many indicators for success. In addition to these rankings, Rollins also excels in a number of critical areas, including our robust research funding portfolio, our award-winning faculty, our strong relationships with national and local organizations, and the caliber of individuals that make up our community.” 

Rollins has ranked in the top 10 for 20 years and was most recently ranked No. 4. In addition to its ranking as a school, Rollins also secured top spots for each of the programs individually ranked this year: environmental health science, social behavior, epidemiology, health policy and management, and biostatistics. 

Additional recent major achievements for the school include:

  • Rollins ranked No. 5 nationally among schools of public health in National Institutes of Health funding, receiving more than $62 million in fiscal year 2023.
  • Total research funding for the school in fiscal year 2023 was $179 million.
  • Stephen Patrick will join the school June 1 as new chair of the Department of Health Policy and Management.
  • The school recently crossed the six-month mark since the launch of its strategic plan and has made substantial progress toward achieving the six goals outlined in the plan. Progress updates will be posted to the strategic plan website later this month.
