Global Themed Living Community

The Global Village-themed community provides a supportive living and learning environment for international and domestic students interested in experiencing diverse languages, cultures, backgrounds, and viewpoints in their academic and personal journeys.  

Global Village residents engage in cross-cultural programs and experiences that enhance their global competencies, promote understanding of and sensitivity to diversity and inclusion issues, and promote civic engagement and social justice domestically and across borders. Events and activities will be planned and coordinated jointly by collaboration between the residents, Student Affairs, and the Center for Global Engagement.
