The recent downturn in the economy hasn’t kept the RSPH from growing, notes Dean James Curran. The new Claudia Nance Rollins Building (above), on schedule and slightly under budget, will be ready for students next fall. During the past 18 months, the number of full-time faculty has grown by more than 10%. This fall, the RSPH enrolled the largest number of new students ever. As of September, the school had 441 new students, a 24% increase over last year. Total enrollment is 992 students, including 148 new students in global programs.

Kara Brown Robinson, assistant dean for admissions and recruitment, credits the increase to growing interest in public health and global health-related programs among the current generation of students.
