Our mission is to engage new researchers and practitioners in the field of global health and to establish new and unique relationships that foster a multidisciplinary approach to solving global health problems.
We define global health as research, service, and training that address health problems that transcend national boundaries, that disproportionately affect the resource-poor, and that are best addressed through multidisciplinary solutions.
Upon completion of the Global Health Minor, we expect students to:
- Analyze global health problems, issues and controversies using multiple disciplinary perspectives and conceptual frameworks.
- Integrate knowledge from academic study and experiential learning toward being active and informed citizens in a global community.
- Demonstrate the capacity to critically reflect on one's own values, ethics, assumptions and actions in the context of cultures, collaborations and institutions.
- Demonstrate the capacity to collaborate across differences (e.g. cultural, social, personal, economic, values, religious).
