About Us

Global Studies Outreach at Harvard is a collaboration amongst regional and internationally focused centers and programs at Harvard that share a commitment to educational outreach. The primary goal of this collaboration is to help the general public, and especially K-12 and community college educators and students, better understand the complex world in which we live. We do this by organizing events—specifically our annual summer workshop for educators- around global themes and preparing and disseminating resources for classroom use—both of which build on Harvard’s impressive human and material resources. 


This was hands-down the most useful, intellectually challenging, thought-provoking, and transformative professional development I’ve ever done.”
“I came to this workshop because of enthusiastic reviews from my colleagues who have attended previous workshops. It met my expectations, and then some. The level of scholarship was high, the information was provocative and useful, and the pedagogical techniques were relevant.”
“I'm going to sing this from the rooftops!! All of this was accessible, digestible, relevant, professional, organized, and fun.”
