Explore the Global Health Program
Students are welcome to petition for other opportunities (semester abroad, public health research with a Cornell professor, non-profit internship, etc.) to count towards the experiential learning requirement for the Global Health Minor. If you plan to pursue such an experience, we require you to meet with Jeanne Moseley or the Global Health Program Fellow to discuss your plans and submit an Independent Field Experience petition form. You can obtain this petition by emailing email@example.com.
My engagement in curriculum during class time, complemented by experiential learning opportunities both on and off campus, have transformed the way I approach learning. Transformational experiences in this program have led me to crave a deeper understanding of myself and my communities - an understanding that I now recognize can only be accomplished by community-engaged learning. The mentors I have gained, including students, faculty and staff, have guided my professional goals as well as my personal growth while introducing me to a new way of thinking- one where academia and community engagement with active leadership stand side by side.
