While it was founded in 1997, the Milken Institute SPH occupied space in various university buildings and several leased locations scattered around the university’s Foggy Bottom campus for the first 17 years of its existence. Its highly innovative new building accommodates the school’s six academic departments and all of its programs under a single roof for the first time in its history and is a dramatic expression of public health education for the 21st century. This building provides a central location for faculty, students, alumni and staff to make face-to-face connections, and is particularly attentive to the needs of the many working professional students who enroll in the school’s evening programs. The building was conceived as a focal point for hosting public health events in Washington, and it enables Milken Institute SPH to greatly expand its mission of convening local legislators, practitioners and researchers to bring real-world perspective to public health education.
