The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is home to many of the world’s most talented students, faculty and staff. At the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, we are reminded daily that timely deployment of strategic ideas and resources makes the difference between life and death. As the #1 public school of public health, we stand ready to face the greatest issues of our time.

Public health is a dynamic field in which the issues we face are changing constantly. Our solutions, therefore, must be equally dynamic. To keep our problem-solving on pace with novel disease development, evolving viruses that resist known cures, and global population growth that spawns new challenges, we must invest in fresh ideas.

At the UNC Gillings School, we innovate because we must. From combating harmful physical and social environmental threats, to harnessing big data to solve statistical puzzles on a global scale, to trailblazing efforts in implementation science that ensure ‘light-bulb’ ideas become practical solutions, the Gillings School sets the pace.

Join us in the Campaign for Carolina as we continue providing our students with world-class education and training, our faculty members with the necessary tools to advance their research and our School with the 21st-century resources needed to maintain our position as a global leader.

In appreciation,




Karissa Grasty
