Each department in the School of Public Health and Health Sciences supports an undergraduate Registered Student Organization (RSO) in its major. The individual student clubs are:
- Kinesiology Club
- National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA)
- Public Health Club
- UMass Nutrition Association (UMNA)
The various SPHHS student clubs provide an opportunity to socialize with peers in your major and across the School and University, to participate in academic and career development events, and to perform community service and volunteer work. It’s also a great way to develop a great peer network while having fun with friends and fellow students.
We encourage all of our students to join your respective student club and get the most out of your SPHHS experience!
The Kinesiology Club was formed to serve as a link among students both in and interested in the Kinesiology major, to organize and attend events of interest to us, and to create networking opportunities among students and with faculty. They attend the New England College of Sports Medicine (NEACSM) Fall Conference and invite numerous guest speakers from various professions that Kinesiology majors may be interested in. Also, the Club holds information sessions about graduate schools, and work with other student organizations within the School of Public Health and Health Sciences (SPPHS) to organize fundraising events not only for our clubs but also for charity organizations.
The University of Massachusetts Amherst Chapter of the NSSLHA was established to provide undergraduate and graduate students who have an interest in the field of Communication Disorders the opportunity to interact with each other, exchange ideas, and learn more about the fields of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology. Through various philanthropic, educational, and professional activities, the goal of the UMass Amherst Chapter of the NSSLHA is to prepare students for the professions of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, as well as to contribute to the communicably-impaired community.
Interested students should contact their undergraduate program advisor for more information.
The UMass Amherst Public Health Club is a student-run organization that provides students with an opportunity to further their interests in the field of Public Health. We welcome all students within and outside the major to join us in our pursuits to raise awareness about health promotion and prevention throughout the UMass Amherst community. We do this by participating in community service, hosting networking events, welcoming guest speakers, and engaging in various social and service activities. The Club strives to collaborate with a variety of other Health-related Registered Student Organizations to help members connect with other UMass Amherst students within the public health and health science fields.
The University of Massachusetts Nutrition Association (UMNA) is an organization created to represent nutrition majors on campus. Through UMNA, undergraduate and graduate nutrition students develop programs to explore the nutrition profession, provide community service, and increase social connections. UMNA’s past programs include scheduling guest speakers, collecting food for hunger prevention services, creating a newsletter for all majors, and designing a recipe book for healthy eating.
Interested students should visit the UMNA page on Campus Pulse or contact their undergraduate program advisor for more information for more information.
