This collaborative interprofessional team was awarded the President’s Distinguished Curriculum Innovation and Pedagogical Research Grant, Global Health Education: Learning Modules Based in Ignatian Pedagogy. The purpose of the grant project is to facilitate the development of a collaborative global health learning community at Creighton University. The grant allowed the team to complete a research study of Creighton University faculty to understand faculty perspectives of global health education across campus. Through a survey and focus groups, data was gathered to inform a framework and content for a learning module on global health. This presentation will summarize the results of the research study and demonstrate the global health learning module. The audience will identify the campus global health perspectives and recognize how to utilize the global health learning module.
