Student Council

Rutgers Global Health Institute Student Council

Rutgers Global Health Institute is forming a new student council to advance global health engagement opportunities for students throughout Rutgers.

Council members will represent the student voice at the institute. The council will consist of Rutgers students from multiple schools and degree levels and will foster collaboration in global health across academic disciplines. Members will participate in developing an annual multidisciplinary global health case competition, strengthen alumni involvement in global health, and raise awareness about career pathways. 



Students with a strong interest in global health were encouraged to nominate themselves for the universitywide council. All submissions are currently being evaluated and selected students will be notified in October 2019.

The Rutgers Global Health Institute Student Council will include students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, ideally representing all of Rutgers’ 29 schools. Appointments will be for one or two years. We expect to hold the first meeting in November 2019.
