Global Pathways 

Global Pathways is a residential community designed to provide students with a unique opportunity to live in an environment that fosters academic excellence, while encouraging cross-cultural understanding, cooperation and friendship.  Approximately half the residents are from the United States and half are international students. Students get to know each other and share their cultures through a variety of social and educational programs.

Global Pathways is open to upper-division, graduate and exchange students.  Selection for the program is competitive and based on student interest in community participation and cross cultural learning.  Residents commit to be actively involved in the community. Visit the Global Pathways page to learn more.
