Creating Community through CHANnels

CHANnels Program logo

The Harvard Chan School is made up of a diverse, international community of over 1,200 master’s- and doctoral-level public health students; almost 1,200 postdoc fellows/associates and research scientists; 465 faculty members; 832 core professional and support staff; and over 13,000 alumni located around the world. As our community becomes virtual in the age of COVID-19, we recognize now more than ever how important creating and cultivating community is at Harvard Chan.

The CHANnels program was developed to help current and incoming students build community and make important connections with each other, and with faculty, staff, and alumni. It is often in these informal spaces—whether the halls of Kresge or, quite literally, the world wide web—that supportive and scholastic relationships form.

Student Leaders will develop professional skills that are increasingly desirable to being a successful candidate in future job searches, as remote work environments become more common. 

Staff Advisors 

Staff Advisors are essential to shaping the co-curricular experience of a diverse, international community of over 1,200 students. 

This professional-development opportunity will offer training in advising, mentorship, supervision, group facilitation, remote collaboration, diversity and inclusion, and community engagement.
