Global Perspective Symposium

The Global Perspective Symposium (GPS)  is a program that brings cross-cultural student panels into the classroom.  International students are invited to present on their personal cultural perspectives related to topics selected by the professors.  It is also an opportunity for international students to deepen their connections with the campus community, and a unique way to internationalize the curriculum.
