Global Studies in Higher Education, a project of Global Studies, the Department of Educational Policy Studies, and the Division of International Studies, operates as an interdisciplinary hub or “think tank” of university administrators, scholars, researchers, and students, and of partners and leaders outside the university. GSHE advances key theories, themes, debates, and tools that link university research to issues of international business and the political economy and to cultures in the age of globalization.

UW–Madison is uniquely positioned to advance knowledge about the changing role of a public university in a global age. GSHE contributes to UW–Madison’s strengths by examining global change and local impacts in comparative perspective and by creating a forum where participants meet, cross-fertilize, discuss solutions, and generate new intellectual resources and wealth.
