Welcome to the Global Studies Center

What We're About

The Global Studies Center is a dynamic and innovative program that is one of an elite group of seven global centers funded by the U.S. Department of Education. We seek to promote critical thinking and practical engagement with the world through the interdisciplinary study of transnational processes. We emphasize the connections, divisions, disruptions, inequalities, and productive possibilities these processes engender across time and space. We foster innovative research, rigorous study, and thoughtful practice through our collaborations with staff, students, faculty, and community partners locally and around the world, creating diverse and inclusive spaces for intellectual growth and debate.
