Academic Enrichment Program

The Gillings School of Global Public Health at UNC is committed to making sure students receive the academic enrichment needed to be successful. The Academic Enrichment Program strives to provide quality academic support in a group setting for students experiencing academic difficulty in entry level BIOS, EPID and SPHG courses. Group tutoring sessions are held for each subject (BIOS / EPID / SPHG) area each week during the fall and spring semesters. For more information, view the Fall 2018 Academic Enrichment Program Schedule.

Becoming a Tutor

Any student interested in tutoring through the Academic Enrichment Program must have received an H in the course they wish to tutor or they must have taken a higher level course in the same subject earning an H. This grade will be verified by the SPH Office of Student Affairs.

IPE – Interprofessional Education Resources

“Interprofessional education occurs when students from two or more professions learn about, from, and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes. Once students understand how to work interprofessionally, they are ready to enter the workplace as a member of the collaborative practice team. This is a key step in moving health systems from fragmentation to a position of strength.”

Student Handbook

View the 2017-2018 Student Handbook (PDF)

This handbook is an important resource for ensuring your success at the Gillings School. It is a welcome for new students and a source of information for all students. It covers major policies and procedures within the School and informs you about our history, mission and organization. It is a “how-to, where-to,” go-to guide, designed to answer many of your questions about getting things done while you are a student here. We hope you will use and benefit from the handbook. Note: This new handbook is a living document. We need students’ feedback to make it stronger and even more useful, so please share your comments here.


The UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health (SPH) is committed both to taking appropriate actions to optimize every student’s experience at the SPH and also to respond to students’ concerns about academic issues. We are committed to address issues in a fair, timely and professional manner.
