The new Gillings MPH Core is the centerpiece of the Master of Public Health program at Gillings – a single, integrated, 12-credit curriculum that spans our 11 concentrations with the MPH@UNC on-line degree program with Summer, Spring and Fall (1 & 2) cohorts. A new admissions process was created to support the new MPH degree; which has different delivery models. Since the degree is not in an academic department, the admissions process has to be administered centrally in the Office of Student Affairs.
The Admissions Coordinator will manage all aspects of the admissions process for the MPH degree. The primary purpose of this position is to assist in identifying, recruiting, and enrolling a new academically strong and diverse student class each academic year. The position holder will articulate admissions policies and procedures to prospective students. Additionally, this person will review academic credentials of applicants to make appropriate recommendations regarding admissions decisions to the MPH program. S/he will co-manage the application review process for the residential and online MPH programs by providing systems training, weekly reports with next step action items for admission committees, and submit admission decisions to the Graduate School.
Education and Experience:
A minimum of 3 years of admissions experience with at least 2 years of experience in student affairs preferred; strong written and oral communication, organizational and management skills with the ability to communicate effectively with faculty and students; ability to coordinate efforts with other members of the department, school, and University; and strong computer skills, especially in systems (e.g., ConnectCarolina, SOPHAS, Slate, Workforce) used to track student admissions and enrollment decisions.
