Global Partners is an exciting way to meet people from all over the world and make life-long friends at the University of Kansas. International and domestic students are matched and placed into semester-long groups of four, giving students an opportunity to get to know other cultures on a personal level. The groups are formed based on members' interests, academic majors, and languages. Students meet with their group at their own leisure and are also invited to events for all global partners, such as playing soccer or Frisbee, meeting at a restaurant for dinner, playing world trivia or volunteering in the Lawrence community. All undergraduate and graduate students and international scholars are welcome to participate.
In order to participate for the Fall 2017 semester, please complete the online registration form.
The First Event of the Semester
During the Global Partners Launch Party and Pairing Meeting, we will play games to help you get to know other participants and match the Global Partners groups. It is very important that you attend, because you will be forming your groups for the semester during this meeting. The Fall 2017 Launch Parties and Pairing Meetings will be held on Thursday, September 7th, and Friday, September 15th. You only need to attend one.
