Global Studies

The Office of Global Studies is the academic component of the Minnock Center for International Engagement. Working closely with the six area studies programs on campus -- African​Asian​Canadian​Irish​Latin American and Caribbean, and Middle Eas​t​ -- Global Studies is focused on internationalizing the curriculum, fostering a wide range of scholarly, cultural, and extra-curricular experiences for our students, expanding faculty exchanges with partnered institutions, and encouraging joint research and community service opportunities between our faculty and their counterparts abroad. The goal of Global Studies is to create a learning environment on campus that increases global awareness and enhances cross-cultural communication and understanding.
