Student Government

The School of Public Health Student Government is a group of public health graduate students who act as a liaison between the students and the administration and faculty. It functions as a communication vehicle between these entities to involve and inform students of ongoing activities and decision-making at the School.

  • We're always interested in connecting with people who would like to plan events for the SPH community—contact us if you have ideas!
  • If you are interested in any of the committees run by the School, let us know and you can attend with a SPHSG representative.
  • Each fall semester, we begin looking for motivated first-year students to become involved as interim members and to start full-time in the spring semester for a better transition.
