The Strategic Planning Process

Fall 2022 marked a period of momentous change for the Rollins School of Public Health. It was the third year of operations during the COVID-19 pandemic, the long-awaited opening of the school’s R. Randall Rollins Building, and the beginning of M. Daniele Fallin’s tenure as dean, following James W. Curran’s 27 years of leadership. The school launched a strategic planning process in November 2022, and selected student, faculty, and staff representatives to serve on the steering committee, led by Department of Epidemiology Chair Dr. Timothy L. Lash.
