Welcome to the Fries Center for Global Studies, Wesleyan’s hub for intercultural and multilingual engagement. Building on the decades of experience at Wesleyan with education abroad, international studies, and language education, the Fries Center was founded in 2015 to further integrate and expand Wesleyan’s commitment to global learning. The Fries Center’s many inter-related functions and activities can be accessed through the links at the left. We also maintain an active blog featuring activities and opportunities (see below), and send out a newsletter every other week with highlights from the blog. Subscribe to Wes and the World Newsletter here.
