CGIS is continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation around the world. Please visit our Health & Safety alerts page for the most up-to-date information! Check out our most Frequently Asked Questions regarding COVID-19 and traveling during a pandemic.
CGIS works with various partners and providers on-site to provide U-M students with an impactful international experience while also allowing them to satisfy major/minor requirements at the same time. On top of working with our various international providers, CGIS also works with U-M faculty that can provide unique custom programs that allows students to study special topics while engaging with communities around the world. CGIS offers opportunities to satsify their LSA language requirements abroad; Global Intercultural Experience for Undergraduates (GIEUs), which are project-based service learning programs; Global Course Connections, which consists of two components: an on-campus course during winter semester and a 3-4 week off-campus field experience that takes place during the summer; and CGIS customized programs, which are designed to make study abroad more accessible for students with busy schedules during the summer. Explore these options below!
We strive to support our students and faculty on the front lines of learning and research and to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, CGIS needs your support.
CGIS BlogRead more on our blog page
CGIS is thrilled to bring the CGIS Blog to the website as an easier way to access U-M students' stories from all around the world. In the following months, we will be transitioning all of the content from our previous blog website and archive to our new blog page. The blog will be updating frequently as we add new and old posts and with that may come a shift in how these pages are organized. We will try our best to maintain easy access throughout this project. Again, thank you for your patience!
