Student Organizations

A student organization is a group that has relevance to the student body at SPH, is consistent with the mission of the School, and is run, organized, and facilitated by students. Participants in each organization determine its goals and structure. They may focus on public health issues, common interests, or identities. They may also focus on community organizing, intervention, or participation in curriculum issues. For more information about Student Organizations at SPH, contact Erica Townsend.
