California State University, Northridge MPH Program
To achieve its mission, the MPH Program adheres to the following values;
Commitment to Scholarship and Learning
We honor scholarship in all of its aspects: Artistic, cultural, scientific, and applied. We support professional development and training for faculty, staff, and administrators and encourage intellectual curiosity in ourselves and our students.
Commitment to Excellence
The quality of our academic program is central to our educational mission. We set high standards for ourselves in all of our actions and activities; assess our performance; and reward both individual and group contributions to the fulfillment of the University's mission.
Respect for All People
Our behaviors, policies and programs affirm the worth and personal dignity of every member of the University community and contribute to a campus climate of civility, collegiality, trust, and reasoned debate. We take pride in the diversity of our community.
Alliances with the Community
We seek genuine partnerships with local schools, business, government, and social agencies in order to serve the intellectual, artistic, cultural, and economic needs of our surrounding communities. After more than twenty-five years of serving the greater Los Angeles community, the graduates of the MPH program are active in building and maintaining bridges between the general community and the professional health community.
Encouragement of Innovation, Experimentation, and Creativity
We value idealism, innovation and creativity and regularly reexamine our programs and practices so that every area of University life will be continually improved and renewed.
