About the Program
In August 2010, Penn State was awarded one of eleven highly competitive National Resource Center (NRC) grants from the U.S. Department of Education to support the creation and operations of the first internationally-focused NRC on Penn State’s campus.
The resulting Center for Global Studies (CGS) has, for the past three years, worked to expand the University’s commitment to global studies by enhancing multi-disciplinary collaboration; increasing the level and number of less commonly taught languages being taught at Penn State; promoting cross-disciplinary research; working with professional schools to develop workshops in global careers; hosting professional development workshops for K-12 teachers; and increasing global connections between Penn State and international universities in Turkey, Germany, and Mexico.
