Student Life at UNC Gillings
Welcome to the Top Public School of Public Health!
Your future starts here.
At the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, we develop public health leaders and real-world problem-solvers. Our collaborative learning environment challenges students to become effective, innovative researchers, policy makers, educators and public health professionals who anticipate future problems and work to accelerate practical solutions to those problems. Through classroom instruction and work in the field, our students learn to solve the greatest public health challenges in North Carolina and around the globe.
Chapel Hill is walkable, eclectic, safe, affordable, diverse and green. Our students love the temperate weather and easy access to activities on the coast and in the mountains. Explore the Life in Chapel Hill page for more information.
