Global Wes Collaborative 

The Global Wes Collaborative is an open group of Wesleyan staff, faculty, and students who are committed to advancing our university’s internationalization, which we currently define as the cultivation of intercultural curiosity, understanding, and sensitivity at Wesleyan through the incorporation of global perspectives in our pedagogy, research, activities, and services. Founding members of the Collaborative include professional staff of the Fries Center for Global Studies, the Office of International Student Affairs (OISA), and the multilingual unit of the Writing Center.

While we strive to always improve our own understanding on internationalization, we hope to gather, organize, and share information and resources regarding internationalization across campus. Both through our individual roles and in joining together, we aim to make progress in the following themes:   

The Global Wes Collaborative meets on a monthly basis throughout the academic year. For questions about the Collaborative and getting involved in it and/or internationalization at Wes, please send an email to

The Committee meets on a monthly/bimonthly basis for international student health conversations and is comprised of representatives from the following offices and student groups: OISA, Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), WesWell, Davison Health Center, Resource Center, Office of Religious & Spiritual Life (ORSL), Academic Advancement (Class Deans), Graduate Student Services, Athletics, International Student Advisory Board (ISAB), and Wesleyan Student Assembly (WSA).
