Student Council

Rutgers Global Health Institute Student Council

Rutgers Global Health Institute’s student council was established in 2019 to advance global health engagement opportunities for students throughout Rutgers. Stories about the council’s past activities and members can be found on our news page.

Typically, council members are either recommended by an institute core faculty member or complete a self-nomination form (available in September each year) for consideration. For the current academic year, we have paused this process to reevaluate the council’s structure and purpose. No new members will be accepted as we consider recent student feedback on ways the council can better serve the global health community at Rutgers. The council’s presidents from 2021–2022 have graciously agreed to stay on during this period of reflection and transition.
