AFRS and GESP are collaborating 

About GESP

"The Global Engagement Scholars Program (GESP) is an opportunity for students to demonstrate their Global competency through participation in academic, cio-curricular and international engagement activities.  The GESP is coordinated by the Office of International Programs and the Department of Global Studies. Students will learn how to conduct basic research skills, identify one's cultural traits in relation to others, and share knowledge through a poster session and development of an e-portfolio."
