Student Representatives

Each year, the student body elects three representatives from their peers to function in leadership and governance roles in the program organization. Students may be nominated by faculty, staff, or their fellow students and must be in good standing with the MPH program. In all other regards, the election process is entirely student-run. Student representatives are valuable members of the Management Team and Executive Committee, and serve as liaisons with the student body. In addition to their role on the Management Team and Executive Committee, student representatives plan student feedback sessions each semester, which supplement the online course evaluations, and social events for the student body. The role of student representative is unpaid; however, the MPH program provides a budget from which the representatives can plan events.

In addition to the peer-elected student representatives, the MPH program appoints an International Student Liaison annually. The International Student Liaison enjoys the same privileges and responsibilities as the peer-elected student representatives, with the added expectation that the International Student Liaison acts as a voice for international students.
