Global Perspective Symposium

The Global Perspective Symposium (GPS)  is a program that brings cross-cultural student panels into the classroom. International students are invited by SDSU faculty to present their personal cultural perspectives as panelists about topics selected by the professors. GPS is a great opportunity for international students to deepen their connections with the campus community! 

 Possible topics vary each semester bases on student expertise. Examples of past panel presentations include:

  • Business Culture (e.g. real estate, trade environment, customer service)
  • Women in STEM
  • Rights to Freedom of Expression
  • US/Mexico Trans-border Students in Higher Education
  • Climate Change and Sustainable Practices
  • Intercultural Communication
  • Exclusion and Inclusion (e.g. LGBTQ+, disabilities, religion, gender roles)
  • Collectivism vs. Individualism in Society
  • Family Roles (i.e. influence of  family on student choices, academic major, study, dating, marriage) 

SDSU Faculty:
