Global Perspective Symposium

The Global Perspective Symposium (GPS) is a program that brings cross-cultural student panels into the classroom. International students are invited to present on their personal cultural perspectives related to topics selected by the professors. It is also an opportunity for international students to deepen their connections with the campus community, and a unique way to internationalize the curriculum.

SDSU faculty, sign up to express your interest in hosting a GPS panel in your class this semester!

Examples of panel topics include:

  • Business Culture (e.g. real estate, trade environment, customer service)
  • Women in STEM
  • Rights to Freedom of Expression
  • US/Mexico Trans-border Students in Higher Education
  • Climate Change and Sustainable Practices
  • Intercultural Communication
  • Exclusion and Inclusion (e.g. LGBTQ+, disabilities, religion, gender roles)
  • Collectivism vs. Individualism in Society
  • Family Roles (i.e. influence of family on student choices, academic major, study, dating, marriage)
