Global Scholars brings a global lens to your entire university experience. We are a dynamic, interdisciplinary group of students that examine global issues from a holistic perspective. We are problem-solvers, brain-stormers, world-travelers, creators, doers, and thinkers from every college at The University of Tulsa.
The coursework and activities involved in the program focuses on creating an in-depth understanding of seven major global challenges. We talk about the Big Questions affecting the world today, and how to start thinking about sustainable solutions to these issues:
- How will population growth, migration and urbanization impact the world?
- What changes are we going to see in computation, robotics, biotechnology and nanotechnology?
- What will it take to support a global population of some 9.3 billion by the middle of the century?
- What does it mean now that the world is more economically interdependent?
