The Center for Global and Intercultural Study (CGIS) is excited to invite you to the 2014 Global Education Fair. We hope that you are able to take advantage of this opportunity to engage University of Michigan students and educate them on services and opportunities to study, engage, and volunteer abroad...and why they should go.
Whether they are looking to develop the skills they'll need to compete in a global economy, build meaningful connections with people from around the world, explore legendary cities, or cultivate their language skills, we believe this is the best time in their lives to pursue a global experience.
We would like to personally invite you to register for a table at this year's fair which takes place on Thursday, September 4, 2014 from 12pm to 4pm.
