Global health issues are liberal arts issues. Engaging students in the real-world problems that impact much of the world's population requires us to consider not only content-specific information but also the tools by which we can lead students to evaluate their lives in light of that information. For example, at my own institution part of our mission is to educate students to "...live humanely." Given the global public-health problems that cause suffering among literally billions of people on the planet, how can we best understand what this means? In this proposal I seek support to build on past GLCA-NDI work in order to take the next steps of a much longer journey into the field of Global Health. With support of the GLCA-NDI I plan to delve deeper into questions of how to educate for personal and social responsibility through participation in an American Association of Colleges & Universities meeting in October of this year. In addition, my goal is to further my new direction through continued and intensive one-on-one Spanish-language tutoring over the course of the academic year in order that I might more fully engage new colleagues in Latin America. Finally, in this proposal I will walk the new ground of specific faculty collaborations and outside interests as I plan for future global health work at Wabash College and other GLCA institutions. I believe this project will fuel my own professional development, particularly in how I think about the application of knowledge of global issues; thus, not only does this project have great value and potential for me as a biologist and liberal arts professor, but also for my colleagues, Wabash College and other institutions in the GLCA.
