Who We Are


Welcome! We are a subset of UD’s faculty and staff members who are from international backgrounds or interested in international issues.  We are dedicated to contributing to and supporting a globally- oriented university community that values cross-cultural interactions and learning about other cultures. We provide opportunities for international faculty and staff to socialize and network, and make them aware of both resources and opportunities for personal and professional growth. We invite you join our caucus and contribute your talents, interests, and expertise.

On this shrunken globe, men can no longer live as strangers.  ~Adlai E. Stevenson
