Global Cafe is an exciting endeavor we are undertaking that connects students with graduate student mentors to acquire the tools and resources necessary for conducting independent research with a global perspective. The International Studies conference room 201 will be home to the Global Cafe, a community for students to learn about the mysterious process of research and to help develop ideas for research projects. Students of every level are welcome, and refreshments and light snacks are always provided.
The Global Cafe is an ideal resource for all types of students including those who are:
- planning on studying abroad and are interested in carrying out international projects,
- who have come back from abroad and want to start their own projects,
- who are interested in applying for research grants or other funds
- who are interested in conducting an Honors thesis,
- who are interested in applying to graduate school, or
- who are in the process of writing an independent research paper for a class
We encourage all students to stop by and join us Mondays through Thursdays from 12pm until 2pm and speak with our graduate student mentors about the research process.
