PHHP College Council

The College Council is the primary student organization in the College of Public Health and Health Professions at the University of Florida. The purpose of the Council is to promote an interdisciplinary approach to health services, enhance community awareness regarding the different professions within the College, and organize and participate in community service projects. Money raised by the Council supports charitable organizations consistent with the College of Public Health and Health Professions’ mission, student education, and future Council projects. The Council works directly with a faculty advisor and Associate Dean of the College and represents students across the College.

 The Health Science Student Organization (HSSO)

The Health Science Student Organization (HSSO) provides opportunities for students in the Health Science program to learn more about varying health professions while making a difference on the University of Florida campus and in the Gainesville community.


The L.E.A.P Mentorship Program at the University of Florida was formed in 2014 from the desire to provide mentorship to undergraduate freshman and sophomores intending to enter the Bachelor of Health Science program. It seeks to provide academic and professional development opportunities for freshman and sophomore students, as well as leadership experience to juniors and seniors hoping to attend graduate and professional schools.
