Who We AreEnvironmental challenges facing the world are immense. The University of Notre Dame's Ph.D. training program in Global Linkages of Biology, the Environment, and Society (GLOBES) offers real hope for the future. Launched by an Integrative Graduate Education, Research, and Traineeship grant (IGERT) from the National Science Foundation, GLOBES brings together the complementary skills and knowledge of biologists, environmental and social scientists, public policy experts, lawyers, and religious and community leaders. Collectively they seek innovative and interdisciplinary solutions to a wide range of interrelated problems in environmental and human health.
Graduate Training Program GLOBES interdisciplinary coursework, modules and seminars continue however, fellowship funding is fully committed to current cohorts of students. New students should investigate University Select Fellowships. Students interested in learning more about GLOBES course offerings and training modules should contact Administrative Coordinator Ginna Anderson.
