WHO SHOULD ATTEND THIS SUMMER INSTITUTE?
Participants may come from any disciplinary background, and from a variety of stages in their academic career. Faculty, staff, and administrators who are interested in the role of global public health as a rich learning tool to prepare undergraduate students for complex, highly inter-connected and globalized world as both professionals and educated citizens are encouraged to attend.
WHY UNDERGRADUATE GLOBAL HEALTH
The LEAP (Liberal Education & America's Promise) National Leadership Council recommends an undergraduate education that intentionally fosters, across multiple fields of study, wide-ranging knowledge of science, cultures, and society; high-level intellectual and practical skills; an active commitment to personal and social responsibility; and the demonstrated ability to apply learning to complex problems and challenges (Albertine, 2007, AAC&U). Global health issues - those that are both domestic and focused internationally - is a field which embodies these educational ideals. Moreover, the need to train more students - both as professionals and educated citizens - in the field of global and public health is more vital now than ever to help our undergraduate students meet the health and sustainability challenges of our complex globalized society.
