Dahdaleh Global Health Membership Program


The Dahdaleh Institute (DI) invites faculty, researchers, students, and community members engaged in global health research to apply for membership at the Dahdaleh Institute in one of twelve membership categories. At the Dahdaleh Institute, we believe that excellence is enhanced by faculty, fellows, scholars, interns, staff, and alumni who bring a diversity of knowledges from their lived experiences. We therefore encourage applications from historically marginalized and underrepresented groups, whether because of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, dis/ability, sexuality, or intersections across these social locations. We are committed to a workplace that respects and supports members from historically underrepresented groups. Dahdaleh Institute members actively contribute to and foster excellence and collegiality in global health research that addresses the Institute’s three thematic research areas. They also support research knowledge translation by engaging knowledge users, including other researchers, governments, multilateral institutions, the private sector, and civil society organizations.

Membership offers a range of benefits and opportunities, including access to:

  • a thriving, collaborative community engaged in global health research;
  • a collegial work and meeting space;
  • all Dahdaleh Institute seminar series, global health workshops, symposia, and special events;
  • transdisciplinary collaboration among faculty and researchers;
  • opportunities through the Dahdaleh Institute’s faculty-led Critical Perspectives in Global Health (CPGH) Seed Grant Program;
  • writing support through peer review groups and writing workshops;
  • administrative support in applying for and administering research grants held by or supported by the Institute;
  • website, communication, knowledge mobilization, and research dissemination support;
