The Office of External Affairs encompasses three teams: 1) Communications and Marketing; 2) Development and Alumni Relations and 3) Finance and Administration.
The Development & Alumni Relations Team is responsible for raising philanthropic resources and building connections with alumni and unaffiliated individuals, foundations, and corporations to support the School's education, research, and public health practice. The Development group includes individual-giving, institutional-relations, stewardship, and communications professionals, and it collaborates significantly with the university's centrally based colleagues. The Alumni Relations group uses a robust communications program to promote a diverse set of events and engagement opportunities that seek to promote public-health advocacy and annual fund support.
The School successfully completed a University- wide fundraising campaign, Rising to the Challenge. To date, the School has exceeded its campaign goal of $700M by raising in excess of $1.2B. Included in this total is a $300M gift from the Bloomberg Philanthropies to establish the Bloomberg American Health Initiative, the creation of 25 endowed professorships and will provide 50 full-tuition scholarships annually. Alumni giving is at all-time high and the number of unaffiliated donors has grown steadily. With a new Dean in place and a newly launched strategic plan, the School is well positioned for continued fundraising success. As the leading school of public health in the country and the oldest independent, degree-granting school of public health in the world, the Office of External Affairs offers unparalleled opportunities for innovative and creative work at the highest levels of excellence.
