Organization profile

The Center for Leadership Education in Maternal and Child Public Health has been at the University of MN since 1954. Rooted in the principles of social justice and focused on skills development to serve the programmatic and policy needs of vulnerable populations, our students work to improve the health of women, children, fathers, and families around the world. Our training focuses on public health skills development (program design and evaluation, advocacy, epidemiology) and maternal and child health (MCH) content (reproductive health, infant and child health, adolescent health, social disparities, family systems, and women’s health).

We offer a Master’s degree in Public Health (including an online degree program), continuing professional education, consultation and technical assistance to community-based organizations and public health and social service agencies.
