Today, commercial companies, academic institutions and individuals must collaborate and compete on a global basis. Dental education, research and the growing body of knowledge in the biomedical sciences are highly valued international commodities. Leaders in dental education face new challenges in a competitive global community. The Global Initiative in Dental Education is intended to respond to the changing times.

By sharing its considerable repository of knowledge and experience with others, the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry will benefit from the pooled intellectual resources and collective wisdom of partner dental schools and educators across the globe. Consistent with the Dugoni School's Strategic Plan, this initiative will elevate education and health care standards to the mutual benefit of patients, students, staff and faculty, and offer a new international dimension to an exceptional dental school.
