Note to faculty and professional staff: We always appreciate the offer of extra credit to attend our programs, or using our programs to improve one's knowledge of diversity; however, we recommend encouraging your students to attend a different event for intercultural knowledge or global perspective learning outcomes (such as speakers, Thirsting for Knowledge Thursdays, or other events). This program is most beneficial to international students, ESL students, those who wish to work with international students, or domestic students who want to be social and support international students on campus.
