The Global Village Living-Learning Community is designed to provide a cross-cultural experience for students who are interested in broadening their understanding of world issues and cultures. The Global Village brings together international and domestic students to live and learn in a joint environment in UW-Parkside’s newest residence hall, Pike River Suites.
In addition to the living community, the Global Village offers a variety of programming that includes both on- and off-campus activities, travel, and more! The Global Village is ideal for students planning on studying abroad, for international and exchange students, for students studying foreign languages, as well as any student who is interested in world affairs.
Participants are expected to actively participate in the organization and implementation of cross-cultural programming. Such an environment serves to further enhance the building of an inter-culture community.
If you are accepted into Global Village, in addition to the normal room charges, there is an additional $50 per semester fee. This fee helps cover the costs of special programs and other services unique to the Global Village, such as culture nights, international film screenings, community service activities, day trips to cultural events in the community, social outings in the Greater Milwaukee Area, and much more.
