Why CYAF at University of Nebraska-Lincoln

“I chose the Global Family Health and Wellbeing program in CYAF because the courses provided are very appealing and potential career opportunities align very well with my research interest. The program encourages students to help the most vulnerable populations and to be global citizens – something which I am very fond of. Various resources and international engagement at UNL can help me conduct in-depth research and develop professional experiences in an inclusive, diverse, and supportive context.”
