Global and Intercultural Study (CGIS)
Established in July 2009, the Center for Global and Intercultural Study (CGIS) was created 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 sites in all regions of the world, international and domestic.
CGIS also offers administrative and academic support to departments and units across campus hoping to launch their own individualized programs.
Faculty and Graduate Students
Funding and training opportunities are available for faculty members and graduate students interested in leading projects for these programs.
Faculty seminars will provide a forum for participants to share their research and expertise and discuss best practices for, as well as the theories behind global and intercultural pedagogy and programming. Specific faculty sessions on risk management and experiential learning will also be offered for those leading programs.
Graduate seminars will prepare students to design their own global research programs or serve as intercultural assistants for other off-campus programs. At the undergraduate level, CGIS will offer a series of one-credit courses to guide student learning before, during, and after travel.
