global u councilGlobal U Council

Overview:

The Global U Council includes globally engaged faculty and OGE staff at the U. The Council meets twice each semester and meetings are open to all faculty interested in attending. The purpose of the Council is to:

  • Develop a network of globally engaged faculty across campus who share information on international initiatives and programs in their Colleges as well as opportunities for collaboration on research, grant opportunities, and learning abroad.
  • Provide advice and perspectives from around campus to OGE regarding global priorities and challenges and assist OGE in developing proposals to eliminate existing barriers or create structures that will allow the U to become a globally recognized institution, offer transformative global learning opportunities, and become a hub of global activity
  • Assist OGE in developing data and information accessible to all in the university community regarding the U’s global engagement and activities
  • Serve as a “sounding board” and provide feedback to OGE regarding programs managed by OGE and global priorities
  • In collaboration with OGE, develop a “global plan” outlining internationalization priorities and goals for the U.

The Global U Council meets quarterly.  For additional information, please contact Sabine Klahr, s.klahr@utah.edu
