Our Response

As COVID-19 ushers in rapid changes at every level of society, the leadership behind MPH@UNC remains committed to leading with humanity, integrity and innovation. Gillings School of Global Public Health students, faculty and staff are bringing their expertise to the front lines of the pandemic response.

We are working closely with our technology partner to ensure that the MPH@UNC program operates smoothly during this time. Together, we are doing everything we can to maintain the health, safety and well-being of our community members while still preparing students to achieve their academic and professional goals:

Online Program:

MPH@UNC is positioned to support student learning from virtually anywhere. Our program remains open, with weekly live classes held in Zoom classrooms. Students are able to meet with one another and with professors online, and faculty in these programs are trained to teach in the online environment.

Digital Campus:

The digital campus for our online programs is designed to support connection and collaboration between all students — regardless of their location. There are no barriers to discussion, and our online students remain active in their coursework.

Innovation and Advancement:

We are always monitoring our online curricula and technology to ensure the most rigorous and engaging experience for students. Our technology partner remains diligent and will continue to assess this experience.

Ongoing Support Services:

At this time, our admissions and student support teams remain active and available. You can reach out at any time to speak with a counselor on either of these teams about any questions you have.
