ColoradoSPH @ UNC Student Council

The Student Council is a group of MPH and Certificate students who take on leadership positions within the Colorado School of Public Health at UNC. The Council is a great way to connect with other students in the program, get involved in joint tri-campus events, and to have a voice in student affairs and community involvement.

The main focus areas of the Student Council include:

  • Fostering social cohesion and connectedness with students at UNC and across all 3 campuses
  • Establishing and maintaining community engagement and volunteerism in surrounding Northern Colorado communities
  • Providing professional development and leadership opportunities for students
  • Assisting in the growth of the Colorado School of Public Health at UNC program
  • Promoting public health education and awareness on campus and beyond

Past involvement has included: coordinating events celebrating International Women’s Day and National Public Health Week, sponsorship and planning of the Annual Emerging Leaders Conferences, painting and installing a Little Free Library on campus, volunteering with local community agencies, and organizing social events throughout the academic year to bring together students and faculty.
