Master of Public Administration (MPA)
Oreyane Tate graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill as a pre-medical student, with distinction in Interpersonal & Organizational Communication Studies and Chemistry minor. During undergrad, he co-founded and co-directed Xcel: Advising Program for Minorities in STEM, a student-led organization focused on increasing the representation and retention of underrepresented, minority students in STEM. Additionally, Oreyane participated in some of the most prestigious programs in the country: the Science Enrichment Preparation (SEP) Program at UNC-Chapel Hill, the Institute for Responsible Citizenship in Washington, D.C., and the Summer Public Health Scholars Program (SPHSP) at Columbia University Medical Center. While participating in the Institute for Responsible Citizenship, Oreyane interned at Children’s National Health System, where he served as the interim research coordinator managing the Four Corners Youth Consortium database, a national multicenter concussion registry. During participation in SPHSP, he interned at the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and worked with the Clinical Community Program Linkages team to build capacity for the CDC’s National Diabetes Prevention Program. These opportunities enabled Oreyane to understand and appreciate the intersectionality of politics, economics, sociology, and health.
