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.

MPH Steering Committee

The MPH Steering Committee is a consensus development, decision-making governing body that ensures completion of key tasks that relate to our meeting/exceeding all CEPH requirements for the MPH degree. It helps ensure that the School launches and maintains the Gillings MPH as a signature degree that positions us to continue to lead nationally and internationally in the training of the next generation of public health professionals. The committee’s work focuses on residential and online MPH degree offerings, dual degrees with programs internal to UNC, and new partnerships, such as UNC-Asheville/MAHEC. The MPH Steering Committee established subcommittees that address these key training requirements:

  • Admissions
