Welcome to the LSU Health Sciences Center School of Public Health!
We are excited that you have chosen LSUHSC School of Public Health to further your education in public health. The faculty, staff, and students of the School of Public Health are eager to welcome you. Orientation is designed to introduce our culture and integrate you into our academic community.
Our Orientation is a two-step process that includes preparatory modules and onsite sessions. The preparatory Pre-Orientation includes informational material, forms, and activities that will be distributed through emails and online postings in advance of the fall semester. Incoming students are expected to review and complete all requested documents and training modules prior to the onsite component of orientation. Onsite Orientation for all international and out-of-state new students begins on Tuesday, August 7th, 2018 through Thursday, August 9th, 2018. Orientation for all new students begins Wednesday, August 8th and continues through Tuesday, August 14th, 2018. In-person or Onsite Orientation will provide crucial information for a successfully start to your MPH, MS, or PhD program. All new students are expected to make proper arrangements to be present for all scheduled in-person or Onsite Orientation activities. It is important to review the Onsite Orientation Schedule to register for the planned activities and to be prepared.
The LSU School of Public Health Core Values are those that support our school’s mission and vision. The Orientation Core Values are those identified and developed by the students organizing orientation as essential to a successful integration. Both the School’s Core Values and the Orientation’s Core Values are closely tied and reflected in the planning of Orientation activities.
