In recognition of the pivotal support that communication provides to the mission of the Gillings School of Global Public Health, Matthew Chamberlin has been appointed associate dean for communications and marketing, effective May 1.

Chamberlin has led the Office of Communications and Marketing at the Gillings School since May 2019. In a time when public health communication has been more important than ever, he has doubled the size of the team, provided critical leadership to grow the School’s reputation as the number one public school of public health, and fostered an environment that values clear and transparent communication.

“We were delighted to promote Matthew to associate dean for communications and marketing,” said Barbara K. Rimer, DrPH, dean and Alumni Distinguished Professor of health behavior at the Gillings School. “His new title is based on the centrality of his team’s work to the School’s mission and on the immense progress made over the last several years across all our communication channels.”

Associate Dean Chamberlin has more than 20 years of experience in communications and marketing, both traditional and digital. In addition to managing the Gillings communications team, he acts as the initial point of contact for significant communications projects and represents the School in crosscutting University communications initiatives.
