Global Scholars

global scholars

The Global Scholars program is a university-wide initiative for students, faculty and staff to contribute productively as global citizens. The program meets the changing demands of globalization and recognizes students, faculty or staff who structure their learning and work around developing a wider global worldview.  To achieve the Global Scholars (GS) designation, students must show strong performance in their academic work; demonstrate foreign language proficiency; incorporate international/global courses and extracurricular activities into their academic studies; and complete a study, work or service learning experience abroad.  Students working toward GS designation will be assigned to a faculty mentor who will guide them through the program requirements.
