Changing Global Society

What is Changing Global Society?

The Office of Changing Global Society oversees short-term and long-term study abroad and study away experiences for students, supports multicultural programming events on campus, and facilitates student exchanges with other universities. This office works closely with faculty and staff to organize meaningful events and valuable experiences for students, both domestic and abroad, that will aid students in developing a global perspective and engaging within our wider global society.
