Academic Enrichment Program

The Gillings School of Global Public Health at UNC is committed to making sure students receive the academic enrichment needed to be successful. The Academic Enrichment Program strives to provide quality academic support in a group setting for students experiencing academic difficulty in entry level BIOS and EPID courses. Group tutoring sessions are held for each subject (BIOS and EPID) area twice per week for one hour during the fall and spring semesters. View more information

Becoming a Tutor

Any student interested in tutoring through the Academic Enrichment Program must have received an H in the course they wish to tutor or they must have taken a higher level course in the same subject earning an H. This grade will be verified by the SPH Office of Student Affairs. View more information.

Reserve a Room or Audiovisual Equipment

The Instructional Media Services (IMS) group provides audiovisual support for the Gillings School of Global Public Health.

How to Reserve a Room:

Visit the Rooms and AV Reservations page to request a room, view classroom tutorials or rent audio/visual equipment.

The Office of Student Affairs will confirm all requests and send a confirmation. Same day requests are no longer accepted. You must book your room 1-2 business days in advance. Requests for meetings, events, or programs will not be confirmed until classes have been scheduled for that semester (April 1 for fall semester reservations and November 1 for spring semester reservations). Also note that department conference rooms must be confirmed via the appropriate department.

Student Handbook

View the 2016-2017 Student Handbook (PDF)

This handbook is an important resource for ensuring your success at the Gillings School. It is a welcome for new students and a source of information for all students. It covers major policies and procedures within the School and informs you about our history, mission and organization. It is a “how-to, where-to,” go-to guide, designed to answer many of your questions about getting things done while you are a student here. We hope you will use and benefit from the handbook. Note: This new handbook is a living document. We need students’ feedback to make it stronger and even more useful, so please share your comments here.


The UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health (SPH) is committed both to taking appropriate actions to optimize every student’s experience at the SPH and also to respond to students’ concerns about academic issues. We are committed to address issues in a fair, timely and professional manner.

Poster printing (for current SPH students only)

Gillings School of Global Public Health offers poster printing for SPH students. The poster printer may be used by appointment and is specific to students printing posters for classes or conferences only. Unfortunately, the Office of Student Affairs cannot accommodate all print requests, so please plan in advance.

Poster printer policies

  1. Poster printing is by appointment only. Students can sign up for appointments by using the sign-up sheet located in 263 Rosenau Hall. Please do not call to make appointments.
  2. You must be a current, matriculated student in order to sign up. Post-docs and graduates must utilize FedEx Services, the Health Sciences Library or the Student Union for poster printer services.
  3. One person can print at a time (one representative per group). The poster printer is attached to a “standing” desk in 264 Rosenau Hall.
  4. Use a white background for your poster. Do not use dark solid color or picture for your background. We need to conserve as much ink as possible. The directions (PDF) can be found here.
  5. The maximum poster size is 54″ x 36.” Set the “Page Settings” to reflect these dimensions before creating your poster. Rescaling is not recommended.
  6. No reprints are permitted during a time slot. You must sign up for a new one if you need to reprint.
  7. If you are more than 15 minutes late to your poster printing appointment then you forfeit your appointment slot.
