About our Office
The mission of the Gillings School of Global Public Health’s finance office is to oversee budget planning, management and reporting at the School level and to lead financial policy development and implementation on behalf of the School. We serve as an adviser to School personnel on compliance matters and as a liaison between the School and auditors (internal and external). We also serve as the liaison between the School and various offices around campus (Provost’s Office, Budget Office, Office of University Counsel, Internal Audit, as well as other UNC-Chapel Hill offices) on finance and compliance-related issues. The finance office directly manages financials for the central School units (CAUs) and the Public Health Foundation.

SPH Accounting Group Meetings and Team Site

The SPH Finance Team hosts a monthly accounting group meeting for Accounting Techs and Accountants to gather and share knowledge. This forum is also a place to discuss changes to accounting processes (guidance disseminated from the University). The SPH Finance Team is a resource for CAUs and departments.

If interested in joining the meeting, please reach out to Jon Cheslock: jcheslock@unc.edu to be added to the distribution list and Team site.
