Public Health Through Civic Engagement (PHACE)

Public Health Action Through Civic Engagement (PHACE) Logo

Our mission is to facilitate the translation of public health science into policy and change through meaningful stakeholder partnerships and effective civic engagement. We provide a platform for students to discover their passion and engage with the campus and their communities, inclusive of faculty and staff engagement.

PHACE focuses on four foundational pillars:

  • Innovation: creating new and exciting ways for students and the local community to get involved with civic engagement. 
  • Community Service &Collaboration: volunteering in the community through partnerships with other organizations.
  • Education: keeping the student body informed and educated on current events and the latest concerns in public health. 
  • Leadership: facilitating opportunities for students to develop leadership skills, professional networking, career development, research, and internships.
