Academic Affairs

In addition, individuals committed to the School’s mission and to public health worldwide serve on our volunteer boards and our Dean’s Council. The volunteers on these boards possess a wealth of experience and knowledge in public health, business and leadership.

  • The School’s Advisory Council provides strategic input to the School’s leadership.
  • The External Advisory Council includes six members from external organizations (three current/former deans of schools of public health) who provide input into our academic and research programs; identify potential academic concerns and issues and provide advice on best practices; and provide perspective regarding how other schools of public health handle issues such as faculty governance, indirect costs, global health and centers.
  • The Board of Directors of the Public Health Foundation provides fiduciary oversight to the assets of the nonprofit foundation that manages the School’s charitable gifts.
  • The Dean’s Council, comprising department chairs, deans and directors from throughout the School, provides oversight and management of day-to-day operations such as administration, academics, research, service, communications, technology and external affairs.
