Bradley took another step to boost its global presence by establishing the Office of Global Studies and Initiatives (OGSI) this past summer.
While there currently are numerous global learning opportunities at the university, including Global Scholars programs and study abroad, the OGSI will collaborate with units and programs across campus to support and expand those opportunities, giving students greater access to and options for global and cross-cultural education.
Interim director Jeanie Bukowski ’86, associate professor of international studies and a Fulbright Award winner, sees the office as a hub or umbrella for global education efforts and information, adding it’s not designed to replace existing offices.
“We would like the new office to become the one-stop shop for Global Bradley, serving students and faculty across campus. We envision the OGSI as a vibrant and welcoming space for everyone in the Bradley community who wants to be engaged with the world.”
