Any interdisciplinary program relies on resources and inputs provided by various individuals and departments. The Global Studies Program is no different. Rather than merely borrowing resources to fulfill short-term needs, we strive to develop full, long-lasting partnerships with many groups and individuals, both on-campus and beyond.

We consider our Global Studies majors to be full partners in developing and maintaining high-quality educational programs and courses. We seek faculty partners from across campus who create highly interactive, challenging classes and who are willing to work with us beyond the international courses they teach.

Finally, we seek organizational partners, both on- and off-campus who will work with us to provide creative and life-changing experiences for Global Studies majors and who will–in the true spirit of partnership–benefit from what we bring to them as well.
