The Center for International Studies becomes the Center for Global Programs and Studies
February 5th, 2014
To recognize a pivotal moment for international education at Wake Forest, the Center for International Studies (CIS) is becoming the Center for Global Programs and Studies (GPS).
“It’s time to both celebrate past successes and look forward to the future,” says Kline Harrison, associate provost of global affairs. “Our name change reflects a broader role as Wake Forest continues to build a community where international study and understanding are priorities.”
One of the University’s goals is to ensure that every student has opportunities throughout their four years of college to develop an awareness of and appreciation for world cultures, Harrison says. “Whether a student has traveled extensively or has yet to go abroad, global attitudes and mindsets can be incorporated into classroom and campus programming to facilitate intercultural understanding. Our team is looking forward to working with partners campus-wide to advance a more global culture.”
