Global Resource Center - A/V & Teleconference for International Learning

Jackson School of International Studies








This proposal will help us create our Global Resource Center in 317 Thomson Hall. The Jackson School of International Studies, housed in Thomson Hall, provides hundreds of students in six majors, 17 minors and 10 graduate student programs, with an interdisciplinary opportunity to learn about contemporary global themes, policy challenges and real world issues. Through our student organizations, public lectures, and interdisciplinary curriculum we strive to teach UW students actionable insights that will enable them to leave the school with experiences, connections, and opportunities to pursue a variety of career opportunities around the globe. Remote and hybrid learning has become ubiquitous in our field and is critical to our students. Our current infrastructure is no longer sufficient to enable our students to pursue their research and enhance their professional development. To address this problem, we seek to create a Global Resource Center in Thomson Hall Room 317 to facilitate more opportunities for students to meet with, learn from, and engage with world leaders in global policy issues and international studies research. We are applying to update the A/V technology in the room to allow for virtual meetings, hybrid public talks, and small group research projects with international partners.


We will have an online room reservation option through a JSIS Business Office web portal. Available times will be displayed. Any user will need to complete the training before using the equiptment.
