The mission of the Center for Global Studies is to enhance understanding about the world’s cultures, societies, politics, and economies as they shape, and are shaped by, global and transnational forces. We support interdisciplinary undergraduate and graduate curricular programs across the University and our faculty and staff represent expertise in almost all areas of the University, from the social sciences, arts, humanities, STEM, public affairs, global health, environment, and security related disciplines. As one of eight Title VI National Resource Centers housed in the Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies at the University of Washington, the Center for Global Studies provides resources and programming for transforming interdisciplinary global studies through research, teaching, language study, general public programs, media outreach, and professional development opportunities for educators throughout the region.
