The organizational structure of CPH is shown below. Overall governance of College is the responsibility of the Dean, whereas CPH Affairs Committee Meeting is the place for major decision making. Two associate deans are designated by the Dean: 1) Associate Dean for Academic Affairs: assist the business planning, instructional and administrational operation of both DPH and MPH program, also serve as the head of the two programs; 2) Associate Dean for Research and Global Health: assist the running of Financial Committee and the business planning, instructional and administrational operation of Global Health Center, also serve as its Director.
Under CPH policies, the Dean can delegate responsibilities to other staff members and consult with the whole faculty. CPH operations are managed by a variety of committees, which are usually chaired by the Dean except Financial Committee. The organizational structure of CPH involves wide faculty representation in different committees to address administrative issues such as resources, recruitment, retention and tenure of staff, professional development, and student services, and more importantly the strategy for the institute to achieve world-class status in terms of research and teaching. All the committee members serve for one year and the current organizational structure works quite well.
