Student Ambassadors for Public Health (SAPH)

SAPH was created by the Office of Academic Programs and Student Services (OAPSS) in the summer of 2012. The College of Public Health holds events every year include orientation, Career Fairs, Open House/Information Sessions, and MHA interview days. SAPH helps with these annual events plus additional events within the College. SAPH is a group comprised of graduate and undergraduate students from the College of Public Health. The primary role of the ambassadors is to serve the college, acting as liaison to prospective and current students, as well as employers at special events.

Leadership Opportunities and Benefits

Ambassadors will hone their communication and presentation skills, develop relationships with faculty, staff and students across the college and university, and gain experience in event and program planning and management.
