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:
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.
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.
The health educators who supervise MPH fieldwork often become invaluable advisors. These individuals must, per CEPH accreditation requirements, be public health professionals.
While not formal advisors to students, our alumni are everywhere — and they have big hearts and lots of advice for students in the program.
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.
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.
