Student Organizations Partnerships and Involvement

CEPAR collaborates with various student organizations to provide experiential learning opportunities and support organizational missions with the goal of strengthening emergency preparedness across the Emory community.

One of the oldest graduate student organizations at the Rollins School of Public Health, SORT aims to promote public health through leadership, hands-on training, and experiences in outbreak response and emergency preparedness. CEPAR and SORT’s strong collaboration has provided its’ members many opportunities to engage, from participating in mass casualty incident (MCI) drills to providing input on CEPAR’s student programming. At the beginning of 2022, CEPAR furthered this partnership by becoming a representative on SORT’s steering committee.
