View tentative agenda


Each spring, the Gillings School of Global Public Health hosts an all-day program (8 a.m. – 3 p.m.) for applicants admitted as graduate students for the following fall. Admitted students can connect directly with current students and members of the School’s faculty and staff and learn why the Gillings School is a great place for an excellent public health education.

Bring your questions about student life at UNC, research opportunities, financial aid and life in Chapel Hill.

Those who participate in Experience Gillings are asked to make their own arrangements for transportation and lodging. We’ll provide breakfast and refreshments at the student meet-and-greet.
