Going Global for Faculty
The Office of Global Outreach (OGO) supports faculty members who wish to develop global dimensions to their teaching, scholarship and service, whether that means teaching about or researching global health topics, leading classes or service-learning projects abroad or collaborating on interdisciplinary team projects with other U-M health professionals.
Global Health Research
The International Institute's eighteen centers and programs provide expertise in specific regions of the world and in thematic issues such as international security, development, business and governance. Faculty can apply for a number of grants through the Institute, including State Department programs such as the Fulbright.
The University Library system has a wealth of online global health resources and a dedicated professional staff to assist faculty and students. For a guided introduction to online databases, please download: Global Health Information Resources.
The OGO also assists in bringing international colleagues and researchers from partner institutions here as visiting international scholars to collaborate with our faculty.
