Benefits of the Global Discovery Hub
Benefits to Faculty
The faculty and staff module and faculty profiles will allow users to share information pertaining to their post-baccalaureate education received outside the U.S., international research, teaching and training, creative endeavors, professional service and consulting, as well as global awards and honors. Faculty will be able to identify possible collaborators, individuals with particular language or geographic expertise, and will facilitate the process of notifying faculty of funding opportunities in their geographical or discipline area(s) of international expertise. The International Agreements Module offers a single reference point for identifying USF's active global partnerships. Accessible information includes links to individual agreements and information in English about each of USF's international partners.
Benefits to Students
The student module will track incoming exchange students and their home institutions, on-campus international organizations for students, and student study abroad activities. Current students will be able to connect with like-minded colleagues and international scholars, as well as identify possible faculty mentors and opportunities at USF.
