PULLMAN – The second Globalization Poster Gallery, featuring research by students from the Peer Advisors and International Peer Mentors and International Center Interns programs in conjunction with the Education Abroad Office and the Office of International Students and Scholars, will be held from 4 to 5 p.m. Dec. 2 in the Compton Union Building’s Junior Ballroom.
Using globalization as a theme, the gallery reflects the work of students who spent fall semester earning academic credit in either the International Center or the Education Abroad Office. Through their respective roles and the poster session, these students make a significant contribution to the internationalization of the WSU Pullman campus.
The Peer Advisor and International Peer Mentor and International Center Internship programs are the only programs of their kind at WSU. As an integral part of the Education Abroad Office, the Peer Advisor program is intended to provide returned study abroad participants the opportunity to gain practical experience in the field of international education and advance global citizenship. Peer Advisors play a variety of roles that aid the office with promotion of education abroad opportunities.
The International Peer Mentor Program, created through the Office of International Students and Scholars, offers both international and domestic students the opportunity to gain leadership and cross-cultural communication skills by guiding new international students through orientation and interacting with their mentees throughout the semester as they build connections to the campus and the community.
The International Center also has an internship program which provides students with a diverse work environment and the opportunity to gain experience in marketing, program development and events planning.
