International Events

Participation in a minimum of six (6) international events

To encourage the study of contemporary global issues, Global Scholars are required to attend related extracurricular activities such as lectures, speeches, workshops, events, performances, and the like. The College sponsors many international events and these, along with outside / community events, may be used to meet this requirement.

How do you identify international events? When you apply to Global Scholars, you are added to a listserv that is used to communicate events when they are known ... so, if you know of an upcoming event that may be a candidate for this requirement, and you haven't gotten an email from Global Scholars about it, please communicate with so information about it can be disseminated. At the same time, you can monitor the EVENTS tile on My Portal to see what is announced there. 

When students meet with their faculty Global Scholars mentor for the first time, they are given a Global Scholar Event Passport, a booklet that is used to document attendance at an international event. Have your Passport with you when you attend, and ask someone in charge to sign it, verifying your attendance. If an event is accessible remotely, take a selfie in front of your computer screen during the event as evidence of your attendance. Keep your passport and selfies in a safe place and turn them in together, at one time, when you have completed the requirements of the program. 

You will turn in your Global Scholars Passports and other requested information to your mentors, who in turn 'sign off' on your completion of the program requirements.
