Virtual Office Hour FAQs


Do I need to RSVP in order to attend?

Nope, you can join the Zoom meeting at any point. No need to let us know you're coming, just like you would stop by an office.


Do you have to join with video?

Using video is not required, but welcome!


What if I'm just interested in a program, but don't have a specific question?

We encourage you to read up on programs you're interested in on our website. We also know reading about a program isn't the same as talking to someone. If you just one to chat with one of us to better understand global health case competitions or internships or whatever else, please join the virtual office hours to do so!


Are Sparkman Center programs only for School of Public Health students?

No, students from any discipline and school can take part in Sparkman Center programs. The only exception to this is the SOPH Foreign Travel Award, which is only for SOPH students. However, all other programs are open to all students. Global health is interdisciplinary work after all!
