Global Partners is an exciting way to meet people from all over the world and make life-long friends at the University of Kansas. International and domestic students are matched and placed into semester-long groups of four, giving students an opportunity to get to know other cultures on a person level. The groups are formed based on members' interests, academic majors, and languages. Students meet with their group at their own leisure and are also invited to events for all global partners, such as playing soccer or Frisbee, meeting at a restaurant for dinner, playing world trivia or volunteering in the Lawrence community. All undergraduate and graduate students and international scholars are welcome to participate.
