From the Dean

Dean Burke provides guidance on referring to the Public Health building

In light of the recent Board of Trustee decision removing the name "Parran Hall" from our main building, Dean Burke advises that the interim name for the building will simply be “Public Health.” Please avoid using building names for physical addresses in the Graduate School of Public Health, whether in the main building, laboratory annex, or Crabtree Hall.  Instead, use the unique room number followed by "Public Health"
