Global Health Student Advisory Board

The University of Minnesota's Global Health Student Advisory Board (GHSAB) is an interprofessional global health student group. This committee of student representatives from graduate and professional programs across the Academic Health Center works to educate and mobilize the next generation of socially responsible global health professionals.

GHSAB meets once per month between October and March, advises the Center for Global Health & Social Responsibility (CGHSR) on programs and activities, and promotes ethical student initiatives and opportunities for learning within global health systems.


Applications are collected each Fall for two-year terms on the board. Applications for the 2018-19 board are now closed. Check back Fall 2019 for the next application cycle.
