The UC Berkeley School of Public Health (SPH) was founded in 1943; during 2018 we celebrated our 75th anniversary. We are fueled by a deep commitment to social and environmental justice, scientific inquiry and discovery, and community-engaged public health action. The School's mission is to improve population health, especially for the most vulnerable. We do this by preparing the next generation of diverse public health scholars, practitioners, and leaders through preeminent educational programs; transformational research that sheds new light on the public health threats and opportunities of today and tomorrow; and by translating new discoveries into practice through partnerships that address the critical health needs and inequities in our diverse communities.
The School is a world-renowned institution and widely regarded as the birthplace of social epidemiology and community-based participatory research. Our research broadly focuses on the interaction of biological, behavioral, and environmental determinants of human health. In 2018-19, the School enrolled 720 graduate students across MPH, MS, MA, PhD, and DrPH degree offerings, with both residential and online programs, as well as educating 450 undergraduate students through an upper-division public health major.
The Student Funding & Admissions Coordinator is part of the dynamic SPH Recruitment & Admissions Team. The Coordinator educates prospective students about admissions processes, requirements, and policies, and both prospective and current students about funding opportunities (e.g., fellowships, scholarships, grants, financial aid, etc.). The Coordinator tracks available student funding sources, informs decision-making on the awarding of funding, communicates funding decisions, and processes awards to students. The Coordinator helps to develop and carry-out student outreach and recruitment activities, and may travel locally/nationally for events. The Coordinator also helps inform and process admissions decisions, and serves as a resource for the related systems.
The team is seeking an excellent communicator who is very attentive to detail, is a strong team-player with self-initiative, and is adept at working with numbers/data and learning/educating others on a wide-variety of admissions and funding-related topics. The role incorporates both student-facing activities and interaction, and behind-the-scenes processing and data management. Training will be provided for all aspects of the role, so prior student recruitment, admissions and/or funding experience is not required.
