Invest in Global-Ready Graduates
Global-ready graduates are equipped to work with diverse individuals, organizations, markets, and governments. This global skill-set is no longer a nice extra for a resumé; it is a necessity for success. Preparing the next generation of graduates for the global challenges that lie ahead requires innovation and investment.
We envision a future where all students, regardless of income or background, have the opportunity to live and learn abroad. At the same time, we know that meaningful experiences don’t only happen in other countries. That’s why we are equipping faculty to build global learning into their classrooms and curricula, and we are developing innovative ways for U.S. and international students to learn from each other—right here in Minnesota.
Your gift to empower global-ready graduates will:
- Develop meaningful opportunities for students to engage with those who have different beliefs, cultures, languages, and values
- Increase the capacity for more faculty to participate in the Internationalizing Teaching and Learning Faculty Cohort
- Create scholarships for students who have not traditionally participated in learning abroad opportunities
