Environmental and Occupational Health

The Department of Environmental and Occupational Health shares in the University’s commitment to promoting and protecting the health and well-being of human populations. The Department of Environmental and Occupational Health is committed to understanding how environmental risks impact human health. Our department is comprised of diverse faculty who are engaged in multidisciplinary research, teaching and service in Indiana and globally. We seek to provide students with the necessary skills and knowledge in toxicology, occupational health and global environmental health to solve environmental health challenges locally and globally.

We envision a department that will be a leader in toxicology, global and rural environmental health and occupational health with degree programs tailored for students to enter professional settings in industry, government and academia.


The mission of the IU Environmental and Occupational Health Department is to foster excellence in scientific research, training, and outreach in environmental health with a goal of identifying, understanding, and preventing environmentally-related diseases covering the human life span, and to enhance the quality of life of people in Indiana and around the world.
