The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Global Zone initiative promotes cultural awareness, advocacy, and targeted support for international and study abroad students.
Global Zone participants commit to fostering a welcoming and inclusive campus environment for students of all cultural backgrounds.
UTC faculty and staff receive the Global Zone designation after completing a training on challenges commonly faced by international and study abroad students. Participants discuss strategies for supporting these students through cultural adjustment resources and advocacy.
