Office of Student Affairs

The Office of Student Affairs works to enhance the experience of students in the UW School of Public Health by creating a vibrant school community and providing the support and resources necessary for success. This mission is accomplished through co-curricular programming that complements students' academics and facilitates their involvement in research and service.

Our areas of activity include policy development and student advocacy, student workshops and academic tutoring, community service programs, SPH-level fellowships and scholarships, and the MPH practicum. Serving as a central resource, we seek to supplement and reinforce the work of the departments and the community of practitioners that is their student services staff. We provide recruitment support and act as a gateway for prospective students through our print materials, web presence, and one-on-one advising that connects them directly with program offices. Working closely with student groups, we advise and foster student leadership and engagement.
