We coordinate major schoolwide programs such as orientations, a student activities fair, a career and internship fair and professional development workshops. We work to recruit excellent students; coordinate diversity outreach programs to expose high school, undergraduate students and professionals to the field of public health; and offer 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.
