  • The Visiting Scholars program provides funding for campus visits by distinguished scholars, writers, and practitioners with expertise in developing countries and communities, particularly in areas where TCU cannot take students due to State Department travel warnings. These visits can be of short duration (2 – 3 days) or, if combined with funding from external sources, such as the State Department’s Scholar Rescue Program, for as long as two years. Visiting Scholars will share their academic expertise and provide firsthand cultural insights. Visiting Scholars will ideally enhance (...Read More)

  • Virtual Voyage applies various technologies to engage and improve the educational experience by connecting students, faculty and staff across the voids—both physical and political—that separate us.

This will be an important curricular pathway that will attract both (...Read More)

  • Local Global Leaders is a program designed to engage TCU with its own considerable “home” international communities for the purpose of expanding internationalized teaching, research and service capacities. By identifying and collaborating with international experts from the Dallas-Fort Worth area, as well as those with strong ties to the DFW area, TCU can provide its students with opportunities to address real-world problems in real-life scenarios by engaging with global citizens in our own community. The DFW area is rich with foundations, businesses, NGOs and other nonprofits (...Read More)

  • The Global Innovators program brings groundbreaking individuals from developing countries to the TCU campus to participate in multi-disciplined curricular and co-curricular programs. Following the visit, engagement between the TCU community and the Global Innovator is sustained through virtual correspondence and an ongoing project funded by a grant awarded to one or more academic departments.
