Committees at the Gillings School

Appointments, Promotions, and Tenure (APT)

The APT Committee meets regularly, on a monthly basis (2015-2016 meeting schedule (PDF)), to review appointment, reappointment or promotion actions within the School that meet the criteria necessitating an assessment, as outlined in the APT Manual. Members of the APT Committee represent various academic disciplines within the School and are appointed by the dean for three-year terms.

Academic Programs Committee (APC)

Through the associate dean for academic affairs, the Academic Programs Committee (APC) advises the dean on all academic matters. It also acts as a liaison between the Gillings School of Global Public Health and The Graduate School. The associate dean is the chair of the committee and representatives from each department are selected by the chair of that department in consultation with the associate dean. Two student representatives are selected from the student organizations in the School.

MPH Core

The Gillings School of Global Public Health’s MPH Core Planning Committee meets regularly to develop recommendations on principles, key considerations, design features, critical content and to recommend a model and structure for the Gillings MPH Core based in latest research and practice plus optimal fit for our School. An implementation committee to develop core content will be empaneled in Fall 2015, along with an evaluation committee.
