PANEL SESSION: Making the Global to Local Link in Academia: Concepts and Models

Center for Global Education Initiatives Co-Director Virginia Rowthorn moderated a panel session at the 8th Annual Global Health Conference in Washington, D.C. Global/local initiatives reflect an effort to link the siloed fields of global health and (domestic) community engagement to help faculty and students recognize the value of bi-directional learning and the importance of providing care and conducting research in a way that supports vulnerable members of society wherever they may be. The concepts underlying global/local education are undertheorized and universities struggle to make the global/local link in the absence of a conceptual framework or guiding models. The panel provided both an understanding of the conceptual scholarship in this area to help faculty give voice to this critical movement within their own institutions and concrete models they can adapt and apply. The full presentations are below, and their respective articles can be found in the November-December 2016 supplement of the Annals of Global Health.
