Welcome to Faculty Affairs

We believe that the stature of our faculty is a huge contributor to our success at Gillings and being the #1 public school of public health. We celebrate our faculty’s dedication to creative and innovative approaches to education. While the School is committed to attracting individuals who can achieve just that, Academic Affairs has been entrusted with helping to facilitate faculty members’ professional growth.

Faculty Affairs assures faculty members are:

  • informed about curricula updates and apprised of teaching and learning resources;
  • aligned with curricula development and degree program offerings;
  • connected to opportunities for professional development; and
  • supported for appointments, promotions and tenure
