Making Connections around the Globe
The Global Engagement Office connects the School of Education community with resources, knowledge, and support to engage in and carry out globally-focused initiatives.
Due to COVID-19, we were unable to host our Global Research Symposium in person on April 14, 2020. Like many departments across campus, however, the research was able to persist because of the talented individuals in the School of Education. Check out the posters in our Virtual Poster Fair. We’ve also compiled a list of resources for those of you interested in globally-focused research.
Spending time outside of your home culture is an opportunity to expand your world view, cultivate intercultural understanding, help you to be more competitive in the global workforce, and improve or develop language skills.
The School of Education is incredibly fortunate to have an amazing community of international students and visiting scholars throughout our ten academic departments.
The Graduate School and the International Academic Programs Offices both provide resources to graduate students who wish to study abroad or carry out research or creative endeavors in another country. The School of Education is currently in the process of identifying resources for graduate students who are carrying out fieldwork or creative endeavors in global contexts.
The Global Engagement Office is a resource to faculty, instructors, and departments seeking to: intentionally integrate global perspectives in their course offerings, and create new courses with diverse and global perspectives.
The School of Education is a member of the International Network of Education Institutions. This network is a collaboration among ten top schools and colleges of education around the globe.
