Resources and Tools
The Center for Global Health of the School of Nursing wishes to provide support for faculty, students and administrative personnel to ensure a successful program.
Working with the Center for Global Health will allow the School of Nursing to advance a comprehensive global health agenda and develop synergy between faculty doing important and varied international work. This document is to serve as a guide. Our first obligation is to the University and all travel needs to be reviewed by the Center to insure it is in compliance.
The Center is here to be a resource for all international travel, offering the following support:
- Linkages to university policies
- Planning and organization
- Linkage to the GAIA centers
- Prepared lecture for unanticipated requests
- Expenditure tracking
All individuals in the School of Nursing who are travelling abroad for presentations or for other work (including research or student service learning) are to follow the guidelines set forth by the University. In addition, each trip requires this information form as well as a trip report within 30 days of return. The forms will be on file in the Center for Global Health.
