Global Dialogues

The ILC theme for the 2022-2023 Academic Year is: Strangers in a Strange Land.

Welcome in various languages

What is Global Dialogues?

The idea behind Global Dialogues is to provide a welcoming place outside of the classroom where students can engage in friendly conversations while learning how people from various countries and cultures view topics differently. U.S. and international students are seated together at round tables where they discuss topics such as: race relations, culture, global poverty, gender equality, immigration, global recession, social welfare, entertainment and pop culture. The topics may change each semester to include current international and U.S. issues.

Students at CSU have the unique opportunity to not only have a safe place to discuss these issues, but they also have an opportunity to gain a global perspective from our international students. Every group has an international student moderator.

Global Dialogues is open to all Columbus State international and U.S. students. For information please contact Ms. Christine Shaw in the Center for Global Engagement.

The knowledge gained in the Global Dialogues sessions in invaluable for both international and U.S. Students. We hope that you will join us!

Please note:

  • Sessions will be capped at 50 students attending each session.
  • Please do not bring children to the sessions.
  • All Global Dialogues will be held in Schuster 130.
