Message from the Chair
At the Curriculum in Global Studies, we are in the middle of an exciting and productive semester. Our undergraduate majors continue to bring their intellectual curiosity and energy to their courses as well as the many opportunities related to our Global world that they pursue on campus and beyond. Our summer 2015 Undergraduate Summer Internship Award winners are a great example. https://globalstudies.unc.edu/hom/fall-2015-news-and-features/2015-global-studies-undergraduate-internship-grants/
We are delighted to welcome our new faculty member, Brigitte Zimmerman, and our second cohort of Global Studies MA students (both featured below). With some 28 MA students on campus now, we are pursuing initiatives to facilitate Global research, internship and professionalization opportunities within the program, and also in collaboration with NC State. Thanks to funding from the Provost’s Global Education Fund, seven MA students received summer funding for an exciting array of research, internship projects and course enrollment during summer 2015.
We are looking forward to working with all of our students and joint faculty, and making new connections across the campus. Keep an eye out for new events and also funding opportunities for students and faculty in the coming months. —Milada Anna Vachudova
