Governance

At Pitt Public Health, the governance activities of the administration and faculty are unified, and all standing committees report to one principal body—the Pitt Public Health Council.

The Pitt Public Health Council is a union of the school's key administrators, faculty leadership, and elected faculty representation from all academic departments, the chairs of the standing committees, and representatives from the student body. This structure results in...
  • a functioning governance that is able to enact initiatives in a more timely manner;
  • enhanced interaction among school members and between the administration and the faculty;
  • increased faculty involvement in planning and development;
  • more consistent enforcement of policies and procedures;
  • the establishment of a more formal commitment to achieving diversity among faculty and students;
  • the establishment of the Pitt Public Health Council as the forum for consensus building and for activities that promote school-wide goals and objectives.
