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. Check the College calendar for upcoming events.

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.

Global Scholars Passports are turned in to the mentors when the requirements are completed.
