At the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, our mission is to improve public health, promote individual well-being, and eliminate health inequities across North Carolina and around the world. We prioritize our students’ skills and knowledge, preparing them to be healthcare leaders equipped for the ever-changing landscape of public health. Academic Affairs, in support of this greater goal, is committed to maintaining excellence in all aspects of our School’s academics – ensuring that our public health training meets and exceeds the educational needs of our modern world with a high standard of rigor, quality, and integrity.
Academic Affairs connects the learning, teaching, and research missions of the School. We are responsible for ensuring that our degrees have relevant curriculum to meet evolving public health challenges, developing and establishing policies and procedures that support the academic mission of all degrees and programs within the school, and aiding in the achievement of successful learning outcomes for our students in compliance with our accreditors.
