Global Connections

Living in an interconnected global society requires an appreciation of the complexity and interdependency of world events and issues. The Global Connections Initiative at Texas Woman's University strives to create a campus climate of global awareness and understanding by providing a variety of multicultural experiences and connections for TWU students, faculty, staff, and community. Through educational opportunities such as studying abroad, lectures and forums on public affairs along with cultural activities and events, our goal is to prepare all TWU students to be informed global citizens.

This year's theme is "Activism and Political Resistance."

Upcoming Global Connections events include:
