Global Cafe Series

What is Global Café?

Global Café is an  informal gathering of students, faculty and staff that promotes cross-cultural awareness through the exchange of ideas and experiences. Presentations will be given by international, travel study and study abroad students. If you're interested in global topics and learning about other cultures, then the Global Café is a great way to meet people who also have international interests!

This event is sponsored by the Center for Global Education and Co-Sponsored by the International Student Association (ISA).
