We put students at the center of our work and provide outstanding experiential learning opportunities. 

Our Values


We believe the best way to engage students is to empower them through mentorship and diverse learning experiences. Students graduate equipped to develop and mobilize partnerships and make an impact in their communities.


We believe that health is a human right. Access to safe and clean environments, housing, a livable wage, health, and preventative services are matters of social justice.


We believe that solving complex challenges demands an openness to new ideas. Unique, collaborative partnerships fuel innovation throughout our research, teaching, and service.
