A commitment to global engagement is core to Drexel University’s mission. The
Global Public Health Initiative at the School of Public Health was created to provide
excellent opportunities for all public health students to gain rich and meaningful
experiences working on health issues that transcend national boundries or that may be
influenced by circumstances or experiences in other countries. The initiative extends
the SPH’s reach through community-based, online and local and international programs.
It bolsters Drexel University's historical strength in experiential learning and
community collaborative projects.
Students can take advantage of learning opportunities, academic and public health
practice partnerships, and field experiences to address global, public health issues in
targeted regions, such as:
- Latin America
- Underserved communities in the United States
