Get Involved

Make an impact on Rollins and expand your public health network by volunteering, mentoring, or attending one of our alumni events.

Across the country and around the world, the RSPH Alumni Association and Emory Alumni Association connect alumni to the university and to each other through regional chapters and interest groups.

Join one of Emory's professional or affinity groups to meet and network with alumni across all disciplines. Or join one of the Rollins-led groups below to help keep our alumni network strong in your town!

CDC Employee Association of Emory Alumni

Emory alumni employed by the CDC are welcome to join this new organization created to connect alumni from across all Emory schools! Leaders are needed to help plan events and activities. Membership is open to employees, contractors, and fellows.

Rollins DC

Connect with our more than 600 Rollins alumni in Washington DC through our Rollins DC regional group. Members build bonds through community involvement, cultural experiences, and professional networking.

Rollins Chicago

Alumni in Chicago will want to get involved with our Rollins Chicago regional group! Members connect through community service projects, networking events and continuing education programs.

The RSPH Alumni Association strives to create programs and services that provide our alumni with meaningful opportunities to produce, strengthen, and maintain connections with fellow Rollins alumni and the Emory community at large. A few opportunities include:

Rollins Alumni Community Committee

Members plan a variety of community outreach programs and events for fellow alumni throughout the year to increase the interactions between local and out-of-town alums.

Rollins Alumni Communications Committee

If you like to write and are social media savvy, this is the committee for you! You’ll keep your fellow alums informed through emails, newsletters, and updates to the alumni website.

Rollins Alumni Ambassadors

If you constantly find yourself talking about Rollins, you could be a good fit as a Rollins Alumni Ambassador. You’ll welcome accepted students, serve as a panelist or speaker, plan networking events for students, assist in planning our Washington DC study tour, and more! The commitment is flexible, so you can help out when you have time.  

RSPH Alumni Association Board

Give back to Rollins by serving on the RSPH Alumni Association Board. Among the Board's priorities are promoting the mission of the school, building the alumni community, and expanding educational and career options for current students. Apply here!

Rollins' mentorship program runs each January through May. As a mentor, you'll provide career guidance to first-year public health students through regular communication (phone, in-person, or via email at least once every two weeks). To become a mentor, you need a bachelor’s degree and three years experience (or an advanced degree in a related field) working in the pubic health sector, a good attitude, and the desire to inspire.

Our Pathways to Public Health series, professional development workshops, career panels, and webinars offer a variety of ways for you to share your professional experiences with other alumni, tell your personal public health journey, and offer general career advice to our students. Most sessions last one hour, are small and informal, and can be done from just about anywhere!

Rollins alumni are always invited to join us at local and regional events sponsored by the RSPH Alumni Association and the Emory Alumni Association, as well as school-wide events at Rollins. Check the Rollins event calendar and Emory Alumni Association event calendar often to see what’s happening near you. Interested in organizing an event in your region? Please email
