our mission

Professors Beyond Borders are dedicated to public health and a secure global village for all. We offer academics of our global community the ability to organize their individual experiences and expertise into a greater effort wherever there is a recognized need and workable problem set.

 
developing our vision

We provide an easily accessible forum that can be approached by diverse communities in need of assistance on specific issues, while being culturally sensitive to specific problems faced by diverse communities and economically disadvantaged or remote areas. Our goal is to enhance the capacity of communities to organize themselves to solve specific problems with assistance from experts by disseminating knowledge of tools, techniques, technologies and resources available for specific development needs and tasks.

mobilizing areas of expertise for sustainable development
The work of one can impact many. Therefore, our goal is to mobilize experts to assist the developing world in areas of sustainable development. We engage with real-world problems that impact quality of life in diverse communities in developing countries. This includes problem-based knowledge creation, innovation in context; and mapping of expertise to community needs and ground realities.
