2019–2020 Global Crossroads Programs

Annual Trip

Global Crossroads heads to St. Louis, September 14-15, 2019 to take in a bit of American urban culture. We will visit the Holocaust Museum and Learning, the Economy Museum,  and the Lewis and Clark State Historic Site. We'll also take in a show by the Black Rep Theatre. This popular trip is open only to Global Crossroads residents and there is no charge to participate.

Beckman Connection

Global Crossroads residents interested in interdisciplinary research are invited to a special tour and reception with faculty and researchers at the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology.

Crossroads Convos

Since Global Crossroads is all about people from different backgrounds and countries, Crossroads Convos gives you the opportunity to get to know each other on a deeper level through peer-led activities and dialogue.

Dinner and Conversation with Professors

Global Crossroads teams up with Intersections to invite faculty members to dine and talk with students about their research in international issues, diversity, and other relevant topics, and to share advice about academic success and career.

Free Music Lessons

GC offers free music lessons for any instrument. Unless you study piano or voice, bring your instrument.

Guests-in-Residence (GIR)

Guests live in Pennsylvania Avenue Residence Hall from several days to a week with main events held in the evenings. Students have the opportunity to interact with the guests in a short but intensive period and learn about their work.

Conversations with International Composers

In September, winners of the International Martirano Composition Competition share their original work and talk about making music.

Researchers Initiative

Open to any student in Global Crossroads, Health Professions, Intersections, and WIMSE. See the Researchers Initiative page for more information.

Student and Other Programs

Funds and guidance are available to support GC students in planning their own special programs.
