Dr. Ayman A. E. El-Mohandes, an internationally recognized leader in the field of public health, has been named Dean of the CUNY School of Public Health ("SPH"), effective September 2. His appointment was recommended by Chancellor Matthew Goldstein after a national search and was approved unanimously by the executive committee of the CUNY Board of Trustees on May 22. As part of the CUNY SPH, the DPH Program at the Graduate Center is thrilled to join in welcoming Dr. El-Mohandes.
The Chancellor stated: “Dr. El-Mohandes is a leader in the public health field, including collaborative efforts to reduce infant mortality and increase maternal and child health in the U.S. and abroad. He has also demonstrated a long-term commitment to work with the public health practice community and to provide access to non-traditional learners and students from under-represented communities.”
The CUNY SPH is accredited as a School of Public Health by the Council on Education for Public Health and is a consortium of four CUNY colleges: the Graduate Center; Hunter College; Brooklyn College; and Lehman College.
