Being a Global Citizen
Global Scholars Circuit
Join the Global Citizens Project for the Global Scholars Circuit!
The Circuit is a way to engage USF's community of global citizens in lively discussions about particularly interesting global topics, while exposing the USF community to the wide array of certified global courses offered across campus. Throughout the semester, various faculty will open their classroom to other students, faculty, and staff during a normally scheduled class period.
Just drop in!
