The Office for Academic and Student Affairs (OASA) is the
centralized advisement and student services unit in the School of
Public Health and Health Professions (SPHHP). We provide advisement
services to undergraduate students pursuing academic programs
offered in our school.
We also provide basic information on the School's graduate and
professional programs and refer students to specific contact
persons in those programs for individualized advisement. The
overarching mission of OASA is to provide academic advising
and retention efforts that strengthen and enhance the diversity of
the student body.
Office Inquiry Response Policy
Our office attempts to respond to all inquiries (email &
phone calls) within 36 hours of receipt during the business
week (Monday- Friday, excluding weekends and holidays). All
inquiries must include a name, phone number, and the nature of the
inquiry. Please leave a voicemail if we are unable to immediately
answer your call.
