Faculty Mentors

Each enrolled student is assigned two mentors, one from the UNC School of Public Health, the other from the NCSU CVM.  Mentors are selected by the MPH director in consultation with each student based on mentor expertise and the career interest of the student. The faculty mentor reviews student elective course selections, and helps students select, design and implement the project required for successful completion of the program. In addition, the faculty mentor serves as the primary resource individual to monitor each students academic progress toward completion of the program.
