Year of Turkey

The Global Focus program at Chatham University engages our students in the purposeful study of peoples and civilizations. Our community of scholars promotes the acquisition of sustainable global competencies through the critical and holistic exploration of one specific country or region of the globe every year.

The program concurrently reinforces cross-cultural ties and internationalization initiatives in the greater Pittsburgh area and beyond.
