The program engages our community in crucial global conversations, sparks an ongoing exchange of ideas, and promotes awareness of our collective similarities and differences. Public lectures and cultural events, coursework, exchanges, and travel all foster the creation of global awareness and participation. In addition, individuals gain valuable cultural perspectives through direct interaction with their international peers. Students, faculty members, and alumni also have unique opportunities to study abroad. International collaborations are facilitated through travel, faculty exchanges, and technology-mediated conferences and consultations.
