What is G.L.O.B.E.?

G.L.O.B.E. is a DePaul student organization specifically for returning study abroad students and students interested in study abroad. Global Learning Overseas By Experience is a great way to connect with interesting individuals who have had some pretty amazing experiences with international learning and travel!

G.L.O.B.E. engages in exploring a variety of cultures, expanding scholarship, volunteer and work options for prospective foreign study students. Our organization often reaches out to the international students of ELA (DePaul’s English Language Academy) and the OISS (Office of International Students and Scholars) in order to mingle and interact with the international community here on campus. We have meetings twice each month and plan a variety of fun social and cultural events on and off campus.

Connection to DePaul Mission

How does your organization live out the mission of DePaul?

This mission statement embodies the principal purposes of DePaul University. As such it is the nexus between past, present and future; the criterion against which plans are formulated and major decisions made; the bond which unites faculty, students, staff, alumni, and trustees as an academic community. As a university, DePaul pursues the preservation, enrichment, and transmission of knowledge and culture across a broad scope of academic disciplines. It treasures its deep roots in the wisdom nourished in Catholic universities from medieval times. The principal distinguishing marks of the university are its Catholic, Vincentian, and urban character.

Study Abroad Fairs (G.L.O.B.E. members are returned study abroad students so they attend the fairs--each table is for a different country destination and so they talk to prospective study abroad students interested in traveling and learning in that country overseas!)

Quarterly events (movie nights, dinner outings, sporting events, etc.) that promote communal bondings among the internationally curious students and opportunities for dialogue and discourse on all things study abroad.
