Since its founding in 1922, the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health (The Mailman School) has been recognized as an international thought leader addressing critical public health issues. As part of its mission, The Mailman School is committed to translating science for impact and educating the next generation of public health leaders.
The Foundation’s funding will be used to create an endowed chair to support distinguished faculty at The Mailman School. This endowed chair will support the teaching and research of its holder, which will add to the rich tradition of pedagogy and innovation at The Mailman School. The chair will be established in the name of Phyllis Mailman, a longtime supporter of The Mailman School alongside her family and late husband.
