Pp. 146-150 (5)
Amy Hagopian, Bud Nicola and Peter House
Public higher education in the United States is in great flux. A number of
factors adversely affecting the effectiveness of higher education in the U.S., such as the
erosion of public financial support, have undermined the COPHP program. Recruiting
and retaining an ideal mix of motivated students and faculty are ongoing program tasks.
In spite of these challenges, COPHP is an effective program for producing successful,
motivated, and highly sought-after graduates in public health.
