Hello SPH Students!

Today is the last day to vote for the future 2021-2022 GSGA student leaders. If you haven’t yet, here is the link to vote.  You can also visit our website to view the GSGA and Governing Council candidates’ bio and check out the Candidates’ Forum video!

We want to remind you that we are also searching for one student who would like to take on the Communications Officer (CO) role in GSGA for the 2021-2022 term. If you are great at social media and writing newsletters like this one — this is your chance!  These are skills you will develop as CO and can add to your resume. You will get guidance and training from the previous Communications Officer! Please send a letter of interest to GSGA@sphmail.cuny.edu

Students for Racial Justice Support Group

Weekly on Wednesdays  |  5:00pm – 6:00pm  | RSVP

We acknowledge the emotional and social challenges of doing antiracism work while adjusting to the Covid-19 pandemic that has disproportionately impacted BIPOC. We name white supremacist terrorism as a threat to public health. Self-care is crucial as we engage in activism on the ground and/or from our homes. With great respect, we offer an open, weekly, virtual support group for CUNY SPH students promoting racial justice. The goal is mutual empowerment through sharing experiences and resources in a supportive environment where stress can be managed. If you would like more information please email Student Wellness Counselor Sherry Adams at sherry.adams@sph.cuny.edu.
