Global Scholars

Global Scholars is a four-year, curricular and co-curricular program that incorporates personal development, intercultural competencies, knowledge, and skills that enable students to be effective, informed global citizens. Early advising, intentional engagement, study abroad opportunities, and the development of a portfolio of global competencies are distinct features of the program.

How It Works

Through the advising process, students will work with a “Navigator” to develop a personal plan that aligns program requirements with their individual global learning objectives. The plan will include a series of global-focused courses, study abroad experiences, and opportunities to engage in projects and activities motivated by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

What You Will Gain as a Global Scholar:

  • Individualized learning with mentorship
  • Scholarship funding to study abroad
  • Study abroad experiences built into your program plan
  • A portfolio of your global competencies to launch you towards your career objectives
