We are known for our global partnerships that provide ample opportunities for community-based participatory research (CBPR). We value ethical approaches to global health which translates to community-driven research and projects. Our faculty-led learning abroad programs provide opportunities for students to conduct ethical (and IRB approved) research. A sampling of global health research conducted by our faculty, students, and partners is listed below.
