COVID-19 Volunteer Opportunities

Greetings from the Alumni Council Co-Chairs!

It is a pleasure to be serving as a Co-Chairs of the UIC School of Public Health Alumni Council!

What an exciting time to be part of the field of public health.  The role of public health professionals has never been so critical—insuring our children have safe drinking water and educating the population on the dangers of opioid use—all are areas where public health makes a real difference.

As Co-Chairs of the council, we encourage all of our fellow alumni to engage with our alma mater by attending the wonderful events that are taking place throughout the schools 50th anniversary year!  It is a great way to network with other like-minded professionals and reconnect with former classmates and faculty.  Our 50th Anniversary kickoff event will be held on October 23, 2019 and we will be welcoming back past deans Susan Scrimshaw and Paul Brandt-Rauf to help us kick off what is sure to be a great year!

Please browse the alumni pages of this website to learn more about upcoming events and how you can get involved with the school.  We look forward to connecting with you in the coming years!

Engage with the School of Public Health

SPH alumni can participate in a variety of volunteer opportunities at the school. Contact the Office of Advancement at for more information on the following volunteer opportunities:

Alumni Council

Membership to the UIC SPH Alumni Association Council is by invitation only.  The council is always looking for alumni to serve on its committees.  Learn more about the council.

Alumni Recruitment Contacts

UIC SPH wants to attract the best students from diverse disciplines, backgrounds and interests.  This cannot be done without alumni help!  While students can compare schools on paper based on a multitude of statistics, it is a personal interaction that really gives a student a true understanding of a school – Alumni Recruitment Contacts can do this for the UIC School of Public Health.  Once a student is admitted to the school the Office of Admissions will connect the student with an alumni contact.  The alumni contact’s role is to answer any questions the student may have about the school.  Sign up

Alumni Career Engagement
