The University of Minnesota is committed to building cross-sectoral collaborations within the University itself, as well as engaging and encouraging these same collaborations within the state of Minnesota, the U.S. government and with global partners. Through the Global One Health Initiative (GOHI), the university is building collaborations with local and global partners who share a common goal in creating innovative solutions to tackle complex problems crossing human, animal and environmental health. These collaborations are built around the concept of One Health, which is the integrative effort of multiple disciplines working to attain optimal health for people, animals, and the environment.
