We will partner with global health and community agencies, academies, professions, associations and alumni to tack complex global health issues by:

  • expanding the faculty's global activities in line with United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 
  • developing, increasing and sustaining activities to enhance global health education, research and service within the faculty
  • demonstrating the impact of innovative nurse practitioner health services
  • gathering advice from strategic partners and community leaders
