- Faculty Support
Accelerate Faculty ImpactUNC Gillings School of Global Public Health faculty members are the foundation for our excellence. We must continue to recruit and retain the best teachers, researchers, practitioners and thinkers through competitive professorships and other support. To be competitive and excellent, we must attract and keep more faculty who are diverse and global.
Our talented faculty members are often sought out by other universities who offer large financial incentives for start-up. We must think and work more collaboratively and creatively — by recruiting and retaining clusters of faculty members in particular challenge areas, such as clean water and maternal and child health, the school could make a significant difference with more scholars focused on problem solving.
Deliver Proven Solutions FasterUNC Gillings School of Global Public Health aims to accelerate the speed and spread of good health by supporting our lifesaving efforts to turn proven interventions into routine practices that improve the health of individuals and populations. These approaches prevent mother and infant deaths during and after pregnancy, detect cancers earlier, reduce teen deaths from motor vehicle crashes, improve sanitation in hospitals around the world, help prevent heart attacks and strokes, decrease substance abuse, improve health, food service and activity in preschool centers, and increase the pace of clinical trials. We are committed and determined to implement solutions at scale and to eliminate health inequities. With additional funding, we can accelerate the speed and scale of impact. These case studies show how powerful the UNC Gillings School faculty can be in changing the world.
