2U, Our Program Partner

The University of North Carolina’s Gillings School of Global Public Health has partnered with 2U, Inc., to power and support MPH@UNC, our online Master of Public Health program. 2U offers leading colleges and universities the infrastructure to bring programs online, integrating with our systems to create a seamless student experience. 2U partners with other institutions and powers programs in a range of fields.

Through our partnership, 2U provides the following services:


2U powers the Online Campus, which acts as a digital hub for students and faculty. As a student, you will connect to the Online Campus to attend your live classes, complete coursework and meet with classmates and professors outside of class.


You will complete coursework in your program, which is designed and created by UNC's Gillings School faculty members in conjunction with 2U’s content development team. 2U works closely with professors to help translate their academic vision into compelling content and trains faculty on how to make the most of the online classroom.


Through all its partnerships, 2U amasses data that help each of its partners find the right students for the right programs. 2U integrates its online application system into its partner systems so that university faculty can easily and efficiently review candidates and make admissions decisions.


2U support teams act as a resource for both faculty and students across the life of a program. From tech support to enrollment assistance to placement services, 2U teams are available to support your success.
