Member Benefits

We work with the Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH) to promote members’ accreditation interests and high standards for instruction, research, and service. ASPPH is a founding corporate sponsor of CEPH.


We advocate for federal support for academic public health, working with our federal partners to advance ASPPH’s legislative and regulatory priorities. We also provide members with timely ‘strategic intelligence’ reports, as well as in-depth policy analysis. View our monthly briefings and fact sheets.


We present annual awards to faculty and staff at our member institutions honor their significant contributions in graduate level education, research, and practice. In addition to ASPPH Awards, we also present the Welch-Rose Award Distinguished Public Health Service and the Riegelman Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Public Health Education.

ASPPH Awards

We analyze and report on a rich array of data collected from members, including applicants and enrollment, student, graduate and faculty demographics and trends, faculty salaries, operating budgets, and much more. The results provide trends on education in public health, support members’ benchmarking activities, and guide advocacy activities. Explore our data center.

ASPPH Data Center

We foster an environment of collaboration and networking through meetings and retreats, creating opportunities for our members to learn and discuss the possibilities and challenges facing schools and programs of public health.

ASPPH Events

We advance education for public health by stimulating thinking around degree programs, educational models, and innovative curricula.

Education for Public Health

We offer hands-on, practice-based training opportunities for students and graduates from member institutions through our Fellowship and Internship program. Through these programs, students and recent graduates expand on their education and build the capacity and skills needed to become the next generation of public health leaders.

Fellowships & Internships

Free membership to the ASPPH Global Network which enhances academic public health worldwide by facilitating collaborations between academic public health institutions globally.

Global Network

We work to increase the pathways to public health and to strengthen and diversify the pool of applicants for our member institutions. We primarily do this through recruitment events and providing student resources. We also support the professionals who provide services to students, through webinars and in-person professional development.

Recruitment & Student Services

We manage the centralized public health application service, SOPHAS. SOPHAS facilitates the application process for applicants and enables schools and programs to recruit and review applicants with efficiency and ease.


We offer multiple channels of communication with our member schools and programs including our weekly Friday Letter newsletter, our bi-monthly journal Public Health Reports, Wednesday Brief, and President’s Bulletin, among others. View our latest news.
