Environmental health students are involved in many of Rollins' student-led and Emory-wide organizations. These organizations provide students with service opportunities, social events, public health experience, and networking possibilities. Below are just a few of the organizations popular with environmental health students.
Rollins Environmental Health Action Committee
Emory's Office of Sustainability
Emory's Global Health Institute
International Student Association for Health and Human Rights
Affiliated Academic Programs Within Emory
Our department benefits from the richness, breadth, and academic excellence of other schools and departments across Emory University. Research and teaching exchanges occur among environmental health faculty, as well as with faculty from the School of Medicine, the Department of Environmental Sciences, Winship Cancer Institute, the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, and beyond. Students are allowed to cross-register in other schools across Emory University for courses they are interested in that are relevant to environmental problems (with permission). This allows for a deeper interdisciplinary understanding of many of today's environmental issues.
