Global Studies Committee

The purpose of the Global Studies Committee is to promote, coordinate and give advice on programs aimed at increasing the global awareness and competency of our students, faculty, and staff and build global learning and global awareness across the college. Another purpose for the GSC was to shepherd the globalization objectives within the strategic plan, review them, identify areas not sufficiently accomplished, and to propose courses of action to address these; thereby, providing advice for improving these programs and/or expanding them across the college. The committee reports to the Executive Vice President for Academic and Student services.
