For Alumni

Global Networks

The USF Global Networks initiative brings together alumni, students, faculty, partners, and allies worldwide. The purpose is to build communities of support for international students, faculty, programs, research, and business. No matter where USF Bulls are on the planet, or how many times they move, they can stay connected to the USF peers, professors, and students who share their connection to a particular part of the world. 

By inviting our community and institutional partners to join our networks, we are expanding our reach within the Tampa Bay Metropolitan Area and abroad. We invite foreign business owners, international trade and business associations, and organizations serving global populations, with ties to any of our Global Network countries or regions, to join and be a part of this inter-connected worldwide web.

For current students and alumni, the networks can offer global learning, internship, and job opportunities, entrepreneurial collaborations, and community. For international businesses and associations, Global Networks can offer a relevant audience, a top talent pool, collaborations, marketing, subject matter expertise, and more. The USF Global Networks are also a platform to highlight the University’s impact in different parts of the world – showcasing and supporting the amazing research and successes of our faculty and alumni internationally.
