Message from the Director

Thank you for visiting our site for the Center for International and Global Studies. The Center’s mission is to provide a vibrant teaching and research environment through a variety of interdisciplinary approaches to global understanding.

In collaboration with the School of Humanities, the Center works closely with faculty members to promote research in the fields of anthropology, education, geography, history, international relations, international education, international management, political science, religion, and sociology. We have a highly qualified faculty who teach courses in the international relations undergraduate program, as well as the other disciplines.

A prime directive of the Center is to enhance our understanding of globalization and how it influences us today. Some of the topics include, but are not limited to: economic development, human rights issues, environmental sustainability, international politics, conflict resolution, terrorism, peace and diplomacy, ethnic, gender, religious, and secular trends throughout the world.

The Center sponsors a lecture series and the Journal for International and Global Studies, an open access journal free of charge to the public.  Please browse our website or contact a member of the Center’s staff ( to obtain further information.

Lastly, I hope you find our site stimulating and easy to maneuver. If you have any
