About the Program
The Center for Global Studies was founded in August 2010 after Penn State was awarded one of eleven highly competitive National Resource Center grants by the Department of Education.
Working across all major university units, our mission is to enhance Penn State’s recognition as a university known for excellent research, teaching, and outreach in global studies. Our goal is to create a truly cross-disciplinary center for the creative and innovative study of the many complex facets of globalization. We offer the university an impact-oriented vision for facilitating and coordinating faculty and student research, promoting globally-relevant graduate and undergraduate education (especially language skills), and introducing new outreach programs.
