Built in 1919, this site first hosted a hosiery factory and then, with modifications, stored kegs.
Welcome to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Joseph J. Zilber School of Public Health, Wisconsin’s first nationally accredited school of public health! Built in 1919, our building first hosted a hosiery factory and then was a cold storage facility for the Pabst Brewing Company. A generous donation from the Zilber Family Foundation allowed for renovation by Eppstein Uhen Architects. The LEED Gold Certified building opened in August of 2012. The building includes a welcoming atrium, state-of-the-art technology, exposed steel beams and unique views of the Milwaukee skyline. Building Features: 1) Two-thirds of the building (south side of building) is original construction, and one-third of the building (north side of building) is new. 2) Environmentally sustainable design: – LEED Gold Certified. – 95% of construction waste was recycled. – 80% of existing building was salvaged. – 42% of construction materials were sourced from within 500 miles of building site. Academic Programs: The Zilber School of Public Health offers an undergraduate degree in public health, five Master of Public Health tracks, a Master of Science in biostatistics, and four PhD programs.
