Priority Partnership Locations


DGHI’s education, research, and capacity building initiatives are built on a strong network of partnerships with institutions around the world called Priority Partnership Locations. Priority Partnership Locations provide opportunities for faculty and students and are based on a bidirectional, mutually-beneficial relationship with partners and institutions. DGHI has invested in capacity-building, research, and education program development in a number of strategically-important locations.


While each Priority Partnership Location is different in scope, DGHI aims to:

  • Foster opportunities for education and research exchanges
  • Support faculty-in-residence programs
  • Develop experiential learning opportunities for students
  • Provide a platform for distance-education
  • Create a robust network of partners to exchange ideas and best practices to engage across continents, cultures and traditional boundaries
