Call for Proposals: Diversity & Democracy: Undergraduate Global Health Education

Posted on July 9, 2018

Call for Proposals: Issue of “Diversity & Democracy” Focused on Undergraduate Global Health Education
Proposals Due August 31, 2018

The call for proposals is now open for articles for an upcoming issue of Diversity & Democracy. In recent years, higher education has seen a rapid expansion of Global Health undergraduate education as a strategy uniquely suited to prepare students to function effectively in the interdisciplinary teams of scholars, clinicians, practitioners, and other professionals who are desperately needed to solve critical global health problems. But these interdisciplinary Global Health programs face their own suite of challenges as well, such as a lack of existing programmatic models, high demands on faculty and staff, and ever tighter budgets across a range of institutions. This issue of Diversity & Democracy—produced by AAC&U in partnership with Allegheny College—provides a forum for advancing the public conversation about undergraduate global health education in this contemporary context. Submissions should include a short abstract of the proposed essay (200–300 words) and a brief explanation of how the authors see the essay contributing to the larger conversation on undergraduate Global Health education. Accepted authors will be invited to contribute a finished essay (1,300–2,000 words). To ask questions related to this call or to submit proposals, contact Emily Schuster, editor of Diversity & Democracy at AAC&U, Read the full call for proposals here.
