Institute for Global Health & Well-Being
Education at SLU is not limited by classroom walls or campus boundaries. SLU faculty, staff, students and alumni expand their knowledge by engaging the local and global communities, this fulfilling SLU's Jesuit mission of being men and women for and with others.
Global health is the health of populations in a global context and transcends the perspectives and concerns of individual nations or states. Simply stated, global health is public health without borders. Global health practice includes a global perspective applied to the serious health problems of our local communities.
Our students work with many community organizations in St. Louis and internationally. Students also are encouraged to gain a greater appreciation for different cultures and communities by traveling and participating in immersion trips, and mission trips.
