We are a Learning Collaborative: We value interdisciplinary, cross-program collaboration, bringing diverse perspectives to the MPH program and public health perspectives to other NEIT programs. Faculty and students learn from each other and collaborate in teaching and learning. We are committed to life-long learning for individuals, groups, and communities.
We are Community-grounded: We equip our students with skills to work collaboratively with communities to find practical and innovative solutions to local problems. Public health is profoundly affected by the community environments in which we work, play, learn, and live. Therefore, public health education must be grounded in the community. We seek to be a helpful partner and an accessible resource to our communities.
We are Inclusive: We provide an accessible and flexible program designed to accommodate adults in a variety of circumstances, occupations and organizations. We embrace the lived experience of our students and the perspectives resulting from those experiences. We celebrate the diversity of communities in Southeastern New England.
We seek Excellence: We have a responsibility to ourselves, our students, and our communities to strive for excellence in instruction, scholarship and service. We are reflective and embrace quality while looking for ways to grow and improve. In pursuit of excellence we take risks, learn from our experiences, and build confidence in our students, enabling them to become leaders in the building and support of flourishing communities.
