University College is committed to enhancing students' global understanding and engagement from their first to final semester on campus. The college offers a variety of courses that explore global and multicultural issues from first-year seminars to leadership studies. Each of the academic departments and the Center for Student Leadership also sponsor education abroad opportunities, and the college houses KSU's ESL Center for international students. The transformative Conversation Partners Program is also administered by University College. Through curricular, co-curricular, and extracurricular offerings, the college helps students, faculty, and staff "Get Global".
One of the college's signature program is the University College Global Engagement Scholars. Each December, 10 first-year students travel to Washington, D.C., for a week of specialized programming to interact with government officials, non-profit organizations, and key legislators regarding global challenges and their impact on the students' futures. For more information, please contact the Department of First-Year and Transitions Studies at firstname.lastname@example.org or 470-578-2471.
