This pre-conference workshop will provide an in-depth opportunity to review and discuss, with colleagues and the presenters, a few examples of administrative processes and structure to effectively support faculty and students doing global projects abroad. The workshop will be primarily focused on the operational and support activities, such as proposal considerations, with additional guidance on hiring abroad and the ins and outs of obtaining legal registration for programs operating outside the US. 

Each topic discussion will be followed by 10 minutes of Q&A to ensure participants have the opportunity to return to campus with information that is specific to their own activities. Both faculty and administrators are welcomed to this session.

This 4-hour session highlights knowledge sharing; and finding common vernacular to bridge educational, programmatic, and administrative activities for global health programs.


• Global operations Support

• Budget planning for an international project 

• Expanding operations and subcontracting

• Registration and establishing long-term operations abroad

• Hear from several IHE's with large international research portfolios as they share how they facilitate and support the global research done by their faculty

• Hear about challenges and successes involved with the administration of 2 large international projects (faculty perspective) 

• Share tips, templates and tools that can be used as guidance when addressing international support and monitoring 

• Share a common goal, to increase scientific knowledge in an effort to improve global health in a heavily regulated environment

Participants are encourage to bring their own best practices to share in  what is designed to be a highly interactive session focused on exploring the innovative ideas and practices from other institutions engaged in international research whether serving as a Prime or a subcontractor. If you are a research administrator, it would be very helpful to learn what challenges our faculty are encountering as we brainstorm the issues together. Faculty, what are the administrators doing that you wouldn't want to change and what can be modiifed to better facilitate the work in the field?

Let's explore how to support academic global health education, research, and practice together
