Covid 19 – What to Expect for Winter Term 2022
UPDATE: 1/7/2022: PSU’s vaccination policy will change soon to require booster shots for those who are eligible. If you have submitted verification of your vaccine status through the University’s online system, no additional action is necessary at this point. The requirement will take some time to implement and finalize, and we’ll share your next steps as soon as we can. In the meantime, we urge you to get a booster as soon as you are eligible.
WINTER 2022 UPDATE: In response to Covid-19, some School of Public Health Winter 2022 courses originally planned for in-person delivery instead will meet either remotely, or in a hybrid remote/in-person format.
Graduate Students, please check this page for a list of all SPH courses with delivery modes noted. Undergraduate students, please check Banweb for updated course information.
The OHSU-PSU School of Public Health is committed to ensuring the health and safety of our students, staff, and faculty. We want to ensure you have updated information about Covid-19 safety measures on our partner university campuses.

Live, Learn, & Thrive in Portland
Welcome to Oregon’s only urban school of public health, a partnership of two of the state’s leading universities. Oregon Health & Science University is perched on a hill above the city with panoramic views of Portland and the mountains beyond. Portland State University is in the urban heart of downtown. The two campuses are only a short ride apart by Portland Streetcar or by bike.
But our real campus is outside of the classroom – it’s in the city, the state, and the world. With our focus on community-engaged learning and scholarship, the student and researcher is in the center of an established network of local and regional partners, including clinics and governmental and nonprofit agencies. All with opportunities for internships, hands-on learning, and contacts for future employment.
We’re a center for innovation, collaboration, and sustainability, located in a state that is known as a national pioneer in public health – ideal conditions if you’re looking to make a world of difference.
