Welcome & Pinning Ceremony 2023

End Date: 9/22/2023End Time: 11:30 AM

Event Description

This Ceremony is a long-standing tradition and our opportunity to welcome new students, faculty, and staff to the Dornsife School of Public Health.

The Welcome and Pinning Ceremony was first instituted at the School by the founding Dean and humanitarian, Dr. Jonathan Mann. Student government organization officers will lead the new students in reciting the preamble to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Charter of the World Health Organization as a reflection of the school’s commitment to social justice, our vision of health as a human right, and an important step that formally welcomes all new students into the field of public health.

All incoming students and new faculty and staff will be formally welcomed and will receive pins; all existing students, faculty, and staff are invited to attend. A reception with light refreshments will be offered upon conclusion of the ceremony.
