Senior Lecturer & Director, Global Health Program
Division of Nutritional Sciences

B36D Kinzelberg Hall


Jeanne Moseley is a Senior Lecturer in the Division of Nutritional Sciences (DNS) and the Director of the Global Health Program. The mission of the Global Health Program is to engage new researchers and practitioners in the field of global health and to establish new and unique research collaborations that will foster a multidisciplinary approach to solving global health problems. To achieve this mission, she works closely with Division faculty and undergraduate students from across the university to teach, develop and evaluate curriculum for the Global and Public Health Sciences (GPHS) Major and the undergraduate minor in Global Health.  She is the lead instructor for several DNS courses.

A critical component of the minor and major is that students must engage in an experiential learning opportunity where they are challenged to integrate and extend their academic knowledge in an applied public health setting so that they might better understand the complexity of global and public health issues.  Jeanne works closely with faculty and staff in the Division and across other Cornell colleges to develop global service learning (GSL) and internship programs to promote student engagement in global and public health. She is responsible for the direct administration and implementation of Global Health partnerships and summer programs in Tanzania, India and Zambia. Her current areas of interest are global and public health curriculum development, the pedagogy of global service learning and the critical dimensions of reciprocity in the context of international partnerships and collaborations.

Protocol Title: Utilizing “Ripple Effects Mapping” to assess the impact of a Global Health Program on students, alumni, and international partners

A new strategy of focus groups to analyze community engaged programs is entitled Ripple Effects Mapping (REM). REM is a manner of using appreciative inquiry to discover the most impactful and meaningful pieces of engaged programming.  As this approach is relatively new, this innovative evaluation will utilize such methodology in the hopes to improve programmatic features that will be shared more broadly.

As the Global Health Program grows and strengthens, this evaluation will serve as critical material for improvement and understanding the impact the program has had on young alumni, current students, and international partners.

Engaged Faculty Fellowship Program 2019-2020

I am currently Fellow in Engaged Scholarship, participating in a “yearlong cohort program in which faculty dive deep into the theory and practice for engaged learning; meet monthly to discuss readings, share projects and workshop challenges; and help transform what it means to teach at Cornell”.

Global Service Learning Partnerships and Programs

I am actively engaged in the development, administration and implementation of innovative global service learning programs and partnerships with the following universities and organizations:

Kilimanjaro Christian Medical University College, Moshi Tanzania; community-engaged teaching and research (NS 4630-Global Health and Development Policy Issues in Tanzania)

Southern African Institute for Policy and Research, Lusaka, Zambia; collaborative global health summer program, with Institute for African Development and Industrial and Labor Relations School (ILR)

Swami Vivekenanda Youth Movement (SVYM), Mysore India; collaborative global health summer program, with ILR

Student Leadership Training and Development

I am actively involved in the supervision, mentoring and training of student leaders in the Global health Program (GHP).  GHP student assistants work closely with a teaching and program team, receiving mentorship throughout the academic year to build leadership skills.  I also utilize teaching as a means to provide opportunities for additional mentoring and advising by involving student program leaders and teaching assistants in curriculum development. Specifically, I developed two courses to actively engage students in curriculum and program development (NS 4650: Leadership Development in Global and Public Health and NS 4030: Supervised Teaching Apprenticeships for NS 2600, NS 3610 & NS 4620). In NS 4650, a newly designed course students complete a series of seminars that prepare them to serve as successful student leaders in the GHP in and out of the classroom. Students will use critical reflection to examine their own leadership styles, while at the same time analyzing a breadth of historical and contemporary examples of leadership in global and public health.  In NS 4030, I invite undergraduate students to be active and engaged members of my teaching teams, giving them the unique opportunity to develop and practice communication, interpersonal, discussion facilitation, critical reflection and organizational skills.  

I approach teaching and advising in a collaborative and participatory manner. I greatly value the feedback and contributions of students engaged in DNS global and public health programs and courses.  One of my aspirations as a teacher and a mentor at Cornell is to challenge students to view the world with “new eyes” and to engage in a process of critical reflection.  As students become immersed in a new context through GHP summer programs, engage in service and research projects, build new relationships across cultures and come face to face with many of the complex global and public health problems and issues that they learn about in the classroom, it is my hope that they will have the opportunity to develop new ways of understanding and seeing the world.
