Global Scholars

The Global Scholars Program provides a framework for students to explore their curiosities, develop critical thinking skills, and integrate diverse perspectives in preparation for a life of scholarship, service, and professional contribution. The program incorporates a variety of learning opportunities across disciplines, locations, and approaches. We welcome students from any major to join this globally minded community as we address complex problems in our dynamic world.
