Welcome to CGIS

The Center for Global and Intercultural Study (CGIS) was founded in July 2009 to provide a wide variety of global engagement and learning opportunities to the University of Michigan community. CGIS programming serves students with diverse academic interests at international and domestic sites on every inhabited continent.

Where will global study take you?

Learn more about U-M global study opportunities at a Ready, Set, Go Global session. RSGG sessions take place M–F, 5–6pm in the CGIS office in G155 Angell Hall. Attending an RSGG is a required part of applying to a CGIS program.

RSGG sessions will be offered through the last day of classes, Wednesday, December 10. From Thursday, December 11 through Tuesday, January 6, RSGG sessions will not be offered. The regular RSGG schedule will resume on Wednesday, January 7, the first day of winter-term classes.

The CGIS office will close December 24 through January 2 for winter break and will reopen on Monday 5 January. In the event of a student emergency, contact CGIS by calling the UM Police Department at 734.763.1131 and letting them know there is an emergency involving a CGIS student. The UMPD number is answered 24/7 throughout break, and the dispatch officer will be able to contact the CGIS emergency responder who is on call.
