The Center for Global Education Initiatives is an educational and experiential learning center for University of Maryland, Baltimore faculty and students who are interested in global education opportunties. We promote and support interprofessional global health education, identify global themes that can be contextualized locally, and facilitate academic work related to global education and competencies.
