Welcome to the UMB Center for Global Education Initiatives’ Global/Local Initiative
What is global/local? Global/local programs seek to break down the traditionally siloed fields of global health and community public health and all of the university institutions, scholarship, funding, and jobs that flow from these separate pathways. CGEI faculty and staff are leading the efforts to document global/local methods, develop best practices, and operationalize an integrated global/local program for its students and faculty.
