Copenhagen School of Global Health is anchored at the Department of International Health, Immunology and Microbiology, at the Faculty of Health Sciences, with a school board to provide oversight and support. The School Board is headed by the Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences.
Seats on the School Board go to the deans of the participating faculties and the Head of the Department of International Health, Immunology and Microbiology, the School Director and three members nominated by the Head of the Board representing key stakeholders or researchers from outside the University of Copenhagen.
The Board supports the development of research and education at Copenhagen School of Global Health and ensures the proper coordination of all activities within the School as well as relative to similar activities externally. The Board meets once-twice annually and may appoint an international advisory committee on an ad hoc basis to provide specific inputs for strategy documents, major research initiatives, and to evaluate the performance of the School.
