"We aim to enhance student development by providing a supportive and safe environment in which students can achieve academic, social and professional success."
The Gillings School of Global Public Health’s Office of Student Affairs (OSA) provides an array of services and resources to prospective, admitted and current students. We aim to enhance student development by providing a supportive and safe environment in which students can achieve academic, social and professional success.

We coordinate major schoolwide programs such as orientations, a student activities fair, a career and internship fair, and professional development workshops. OSA works to recruit excellent students; coordinates diversity outreach programs to expose high school, undergraduate students and professionals to the field of public health; and offers career services for current students and recent alumni.

Getting involved is easy at the Gillings School. We have more than 20 active student organizations. These organizations focus on global issues, diversity initiatives, community advocacy and healthy lifestyles. Our student organizations sponsor educational, philanthropic and just-plain-fun events including:

  • Gillings X, a series of TEDx-like talks by students about global health issues;
  • The Gillings Games, a fall mini-Olympics that allow students to get acquainted while exercising together;
  • Journal clubs, lectures and tailgating socials, among other events.
