Our Mission

The creation of the Gillings Global Gateway™
We build on past accomplishments with the inception of the Gillings Global Gateway™. Read more about how we got here.
The Gillings Global Gateway™ mission is to enhance the School’s strategic  global public health impact by:

  • Fostering high-impact public health partnerships with governments, the private sector, non-profits and academia
  • Turning research into real-world solutions that transform lives in North Carolina and around the world
  • Promoting the unique strengths of the Gillings School in global research, teaching, and public service
  • Training the next generation of global public health leaders

Gillings Global Gateway™ Model

The Gillings Global Gateway™ organizes and promotes the School’s global activities in four interconnected areas: research to implementation, partnerships, outreach and communications, and global learning.



The Gillings Global Gateway™ allows us to build and sustain robust, strategic partnerships with academic institutions, governments and nongovernmental organizations. We will streamline internal processes so that we can respond more quickly and effectively to global funding opportunities. Learn more about our active partnerships here.


Research to Implementation

The Gillings Global Gateway™ will strengthen the School’s capacity to turn robust science into effective, real-world programs and meaningful policy action on a global scale. We will focus on critical global public health priorities for which the School has significant leadership strength and the potential to move from research to transformative solutions with sustainable global impact.

As the school of choice for faculty members and students from around the world, the Gillings School of Global Public Health positions our graduates to become the next generation of global health leaders.

As a leader in research, teaching, implementation science and public service, the Gillings School offers its partners the potential to accelerate solutions to complex global health problems, including those that affect us in North Carolina.

As a focal point for the Gillings Global Gateway™ networking and communications strategy, we have created an easy-to-navigate Web portal that highlights our global activities and expertise and provides a single point of access to our School’s global offerings.
