The Global Engagement Office (GEO) seeks to highlight the work of graduate students in the arts, education, and health through two key events. During the fall semester, the GEO hosts a poster fair and gallery walk where graduate students are encouraged to share research and art with a global-focus (broadly defined). Spring semester, a half-day symposium is held to hear presentations from peers, visiting scholars and faculty. Participants are encouraged to present research at any stage, and discuss artistic endeavors that are in process or completed. Click here to see past poster fair submissions.
Fieldwork and the International Academic Programs (IAP) Office
Graduate students who plan to do fieldwork or conduct an arts residency outside the United States should connect with the International Academic Programs (IAP) Office prior to planning their trip. IAP has a graduate field research course that allows students to take credits and remain enrolled at UW-Madison during their fieldwork or residency. More details, including the cost of the research course versus regular enrollment, can be found on IAP’s Graduate Research page.
Using Institutional Networks to Make Connections
One way to make connections with collaborators is by way of introductions from colleagues. If you are looking to do work or research in a different part of the world, and are looking for contacts, please contact our office (email@example.com) to schedule a time to talk. We would be glad to talk with you about finding collaborators through SOE networks. Please check out Northeastern University’s tips for networking as a graduate student for additional ideas.
Below is a curated list of resources that have been relevant to graduate students doing international research, and to international students within the School of Education. Please contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are seeking assistance with something and you can’t find the answer. We are here to be a support and resource to you during your time here in the School of Education.
