The Center for Global Health and Social Responsibility (CGHSR) is part of the University of Minnesota Office of Academic Clinical Affairs (OACA). Together with schools and colleges across the University of Minnesota (U of M) we champion three portfolios of activities: education, research, and capacity.


Train the global health workforce to improve the local capacity to meet current and emerging health needs. Strengthen the infrastructure supporting global health research, education, and training at the U of M.


Champion interdisciplinary opportunities to exchange knowledge and expand abilities of teachers and learners for the advancement of global health.


Catalyze effective global health research at the University of Minnesota, as well as in our networks and hubs.


Our mission is to advance health worldwide, through collaborative partnerships, sustainable programs, and academic excellence.


Sustainable, equitable health globally.
