Global Communities welcomed Dean Ball of the College of Behavioral & Social Sciences (BSOS) to Dorchester Hall in October for a Lunch + Talk focused on his international research and interests.
GC students enjoyed conversing with Dean Ball in a small group setting. The event included a lunch buffet of Dominican cuisine.
Global Communities received a surprise special visitor in early October!
Dr. Shira Shiloah was a founding member of UMD's International House (I-House) which later became Global Communities. The I-House was founded in Dorchester Hall in 1991. I-House is where many important GC traditions like Cultural Explosion and International Dinner began.
Shira spent time reminiscing through our scrapbooks and sharing her memories with her niece, Sarah Boxer, who was touring campus as part of Visit Maryland Day.
