The Student Emergency Response Team (SERT) is a group of Georgia State ambassadors who address the needs of students and promote healthy behaviors as the University community navigates academic success during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The unique charge for this team was to create a 7-step public health campaign that 1) provides population specific health information about keeping students and the Georgia State community safe; 2) empowers students to act on public health knowledge to address health disparities specifically related to COVID-19 for themselves and their communities; and 3) harnesses the power of students who are part of the most affected groups to educate and empower their peers. Ambassadors utilize social media campaigns, student-created videos, exciting contests and giveaways, and confidential communication portals to engage with the Georgia State community.
The Student Emergency Response Team (SERT) is a part of the Campus of Care Committee, a collaborative effort between the School of Public Health and the Division of Student Success.
