Mission and Objectives

Within New Jersey, across the United States, and around the globe, opportunities for meaningful and innovative public health leadership, scholarship, and practice are endless.

Career Services meets this vision through the following objectives:

  • Helping students find and develop their professional identities, strengths, and passions within public health
  • Providing skills-based training and professional development resources to assist students in applying for jobs, research opportunities, and further education
  • Engaging with community partners to promote employment opportunities for students and to remain at the forefront of building a strong public health workforce
