Global Students Resources

GSPD, which is short for Global Students Programs and Development, is a department dedicated to seeing global students thriving in a more globally minded community.

We exist to serve, equip & empower global students toward whole-person, intercultural development. We do this by:

  • Providing a comprehensive undergraduate and graduate orientation
  • Facilitating community-building opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students
  • Organizing workshops on academic and cultural topics to include both undergraduate and graduate students
  • Offering student positions in GSPD leadership with extensive training and development
  • Connecting global students to a network of university and community resources
  • Much more!
