Center for Global and Regional Studies

The Center for Global and Regional Studies (CGRS) promotes the study of the world’s peoples, arts, environments, literatures, sciences, and institutions. We seek to advance discussion of important global issues. And we’re always mindful of the entanglements of the global with the local.

The CGRS is not an academic department. Instead, we work with our member programs and other departments and offices to provide new opportunities for students and faculty.

Our activities include:

Carleton has historic strengths in foreign languages and area studies, and Carleton students participate in off-campus studies at an extraordinary rate. In short, we are well positioned to help our students deepen their understanding of world regions and global issues.
