It is a pleasure to be part of this important panel discussion, “Supporting Transfer Pathways” along with my esteemed colleagues to be held during ASPPH 2021 Undergraduate Conference. 

Interest in studying public health continues to increase at the associate, bachelor’s, and graduate level. Students are looking for opportunities to move from community colleges to four-year institutions, from one institution to another, or from undergraduate to graduate programs as well as start, stop, pause, detour, or accumulate credits across and within academic institutions. As leaders in academic public health, we want to ensure that we are preparing students for the workplace and eliminate completion gaps for students across their educational path. This session will explore promising practices in developing partnerships and strengthening pathways to completion of public health studies.

Learning outcome(s)

  • Discuss opportunities to strengthen pathways to completion for students interested in studying public health
  • Identify promising practices in developing and maintaining partnerships across, between, and within academic institutions
