Smith College's faculty members represent much of the world, either by their countries of origin, the languages they speak or their areas of study and teaching.
The center supports faculty through special programs and projects, including Global Engagement Seminars and grants, and organizes and supports opportunities for faculty to present their research and share their interests and projects on global issues. The center welcomes international scholars, artists and poets and facilitates their integration at Smith and their collaboration with faculty in courses, research or projects of common interest.
