Global Engagement

Engaging with the World

Bouvé is committed to providing opportunities for students to engage with interconnected, diverse communities and public health issues around the world. It is critical that future healthcare clinicians, policymakers, researchers, and technologists cultivate a high level of cultural agility.

Faculty deeply engage in international health—teaching, researching, and collaborating with colleagues in the U.S. and abroad to address the most persistent public health challenges in the world today. Curricula across disciplines are developed to ensure students gain the needed knowledge and skills consistent with a view of patients as complex individual with unique needs.

Additionally, Bouvé students participate in co-ops and service learning programs around the world. In 2017, more than 380 Bouvé students had global learning experiences in 32 countries.

These global opportunities include six-month employment opportunities through the university’s signature Cooperative Education (Co-op) program, one-month experiential courses known at Dialogue Civilizations, and one-week service learning projects through the Alternative Spring Break program.
