Interested in "Cross-Cultural" Opportunities??

| No Comments

Are you interested in "cross-cultural issues" either for your academic interests or personal interest? There are many professional opportunities that focus on cross-cultural issues around campus!!

First of all, almost every major to some extent have diversity-focused courses for students to register, which reflected the trends and great impacts of globalization and diversification on various disciplines. Please look at that if you are interestsed!

In addition, there are workshops or conferences or events outside your department to help you gain better understandings on international development from interdiciplinary perspectives:

1. International Research Conference This conference highlights global research by University of Minnesota faculty, researchers, and graduate students and encourages discussions on diverse global challenges, with a focus on building collaboration across disciplines, shared learning, and exploring the essentials of conducting research abroad. The themes for this year's conference were Food Security and Agriculture Production, Education, Global Health, Energy and the Environment, Economics and Poverty, and Global Governance.

2. Internationalizing Campus and Curriculum Conference The conference focuses on all University of Minnesota staff and faculty who are interested in internationalizing the curriculum and campuses. Organized by the GPS Alliance and co-sponsored by the Center for Teaching & Learning (UMTC), Instructional Development Service (UMD), International Education Office (UMD), Office of Information Technology, and the University Libraries. In this conference, you will learn from other colleagues' research or practical work on internationalization of curriculum and education, and build networking with leading scholars in the related fields.

Also, please keep track on your own departments or programs, there must be many events or research presentation within your major related to cross-border issues, challenges or practices.

Hope it helps! Thanks!

Sincerely,
Xi
