Abstract The Johns Hopkins University Education Resource Center (ERC) in Occupational Safety and Health completed its twentieth year of effort in 1997. The Center supports professional degree programs in Industrial Hygiene, Occupational Health Nursing, Occupational Medicine, and Injury Prevention and Safety Science. In addition, there is a Continuing Professional Education program which has undergone transition in leadership, but is now operating at a high level of effectiveness. Finally, the Outreach Program has always been extremely active but during this grant period has increased its emphasis on activities in Region III. The Industrial Hygiene and Occupational Medicine programs are fully accredited; this option does not exist for the Occupational Health Nursing or Injury Prevention programs at this time. This report briefly traces the development of the ERC from its beginnings in 1977 to the current time. It is clear that NIOSH funds were fully responsible for the development of the outstanding interdisciplinary educational program that now exists. The ongoing challenge is securing sufficient funds to assist students in a time of rising costs for graduate education. Significant features of each program and significant new developments during this grant period are described herein.
