The UCGHI and its Centers of Expertise undertake local and global partnerships as an essential element of all functions (research, education, action).

Partnerships fall into a number of categories: domestic or international; academic, not-for-profit, government, private, multilateral; one-on-one or institutional affiliation. The purpose of an individual partnership may be one or more functions within education (eg, field placements, visiting scholars), research, and translation.
