Dr. Haufler, director of Global Communities, eagerly invites you to join current students and staff at our Alumni Brunch as part of Homecoming weekend. Stop by to tour our newly renovated facility at Dorchester Hall, connect with old friends, revisit favorite memories, and learn about our new projects and intiatives. Brunch will be provided. See you there!
Congratulations to GC Alum Measu Bellay, Class of 2018, and current GC student Owen Brinker, Class of 2020, for their spectacular accomplishments!
Measu Bellay was awarded the U.S. Department of State’s Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship where she studied in Thailand! The Gilman Scholarship is a grant program that enables students of limited financial means to study or intern abroad, thereby gaining skills critical to our national security and economic competitiveness.
Global Communities is excited to launch its Global Conversation Series, a program focused on bringing global leaders to engage in dialogue about timely global issues with the UMD community. We launch our first conversation with David Shear, who has 32 years of experience as a Foreign Service Officer, including as U.S. Ambassador to Vietnam, and service in the Offices of Japanese, Chinese, and Korean Affairs. Join us for a riveting conversation on U.S. - Asia relations and our contemporary political climate.
This program is proudly co-sponsored by the Office of Undergraduate Studies First Year Book Program and the Office of International Affairs.
