MPH Campus Student Handbook

Each year a student handbook is updated and distributed to current students. It contains all the essential information for your MPH program of study and the MPH program in general.

In addition to the MPH Campus Student Handbook, there are several methods of support available:

MPH-SA Student Association Leadership

The MPH-Student Association (MPH-SA) Leadership is made up of students who have taken on leadership roles. Each of these individuals is a peer resource.

Peer Mentors

Each year, many continuing MPH students volunteer to be MPH Peer Mentors. Mentors are matched with incoming students. Peer Mentors provide help with many student issues including ideas and resources for making student life work with job, relationship, family, and community commitments.

Fieldwork Preceptors

The health educators who supervise MPH fieldwork often become invaluable advisors. These individuals must, per CEPH accreditation requirements, be public health professionals.

Alumni Advisors

While not formal advisors to students, our alumni are everywhere — and they have big hearts and lots of advice for students in the program.

The MPH Student Google Group

This is the most important communication vehicle we have in the MPH program. Messages alert students to key dates, upcoming activities, opportunities for students, and other student related needs. The listserv is the most timely way of making sure everyone has crucial information.

MPH Orientation and Information Meetings

There are two information meetings held during the day before classes start – one in August and the other in January. All MPH students (new and continuing) are required to attend.
