The GSGA 2018-2019 Call for Committee Volunteers

Greetings!

The GSGA 2018-2019 Call for Committee Volunteers is open now through December 7th. GSGA is recruiting committed student committee members who are excited to improve the student experience at SPH and further explore the field of public health through collaboration, research, and new initiatives.

The GSGA has established ad hoc committees to engage student members in an effort to build a greater SPH student community. GSGA hopes to consider students’ interests and concerns and begin new initiatives, increase career readiness preparation, and other fun undertakings that students will love.

The selection process will be on a rolling basis until all positions have been filled. Please do not wait until December 7th to express your interest. Email gsga@sphmail.cuny.edu to sign up.
