Global Studies Mission

The Office of Global Studies advances the University’s mission to “educate women to lead and influence,” through academic opportunities to engage with global cultures, communities, and environments. 

Goals for accomplishing this mission:

  • Develop rigorous academic experiential programs in partnership with faculty that foster global learning through the liberal arts and professional education.
  • Deliver comprehensive service and support to students from pre-departure advising through re-entry. We focus on student intellectual and personal development with an emphasis on accessibility, inclusion, and cultural sensitivity. 
  • Drive and support campus-wide global learning initiatives to cultivate and enhance cultural fluency. Initiatives include a focus on curriculum integration and fostering collaborative partnerships. 

Whatever your major or degree program, St. Kate’s is committed to making global studies part of your education.
