The KU Area Studies Centers and Donnelly College invites you to the 2019 Global Opportunities Expo, an annual all-day event that introduces students to academic and study abroad programs, careers, initiatives, and intriguing ideas that should inspire all of us to think and act globally. Join us on Friday, March 29, 2019 from 8:30-4:30 p.m. in the Kansas Burge Union.
At the University of Kansas, we seek the next generation of global leaders that appreciate other cultures, languages, and histories, which is why KU has had such a rich international presence that continues to expand and deepen. With expert faculty from around the world, robust global area studies centers, over 40 world languages taught, decades-long partnerships with foreign universities, and dozens of high-quality study abroad programs, students at KU have the opportunity to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to make an impact on the global stage.
The University of Kansas and Donnelly College, the most diverse college in the Midwest, partner annually to showcase exciting and dynamic research and artistic projects undertaken by our faculty and students. The 2019 Global Opportunities Expo will include: an info-fair of language and area studies units/offices at KU; a continental breakfast & welcome reception; lunch catered by KU; and an info-session about financial assistance made possible by the U.S. Department of Education. The expo will also feature students and faculty from regional schools as part of: two keynote presentations by KU faculty; a student panel about global experiences; Red Hot Research presentations; and spoken word (poetry, personal essay, etc.) and dance performances by students/student groups.
This event is open to all students. Kansas and Missouri K-12 teachers, community college instructors, lecturers, and school support staff are encouraged to attend. Attendees are free to arrive and leave at their leisure – however, you are strongly engouraged to see some amazing student performances (beginning at 12:30 p.m.) and student research presentations (beginning at 1:45 p.m.)!
