Global U Custom Programs
The Office for Global Engagement coordinates
experience-rich, tailor-made trainings that match the extensive expertise of the University of Utah
with the specific interests of our global partners.
PAC-12 CHINA COACHES PROGRAM
Visiting coaches study technique, team building, recruiting, sports nutrition, sports psychology, and injury prevention at the U for three months with the goal to transform the collegiate sports system in China.
CHINA NATIONAL PARKS PROGRAM
Chinese park administrators visit U.S. National Parks to study natural resource management, policy, law enforcement, and visitor use frameworks with U Parks, Recreation & Tourism. Participants return better equipped to launch China’s new network of national parks.
SUMMER HUMANITIES ACADEMY
A month-long program held in partnership with Sun-Yat Sen University in China. Students take courses in Writing & Rhetoric, American History, and Sociology in the U.S. and engage in immersive cultural experiences. Participants live on campus and also spend time at the U’s field site in Montana.
GLOBAL CAMPUS PROGRAM
Pen pals meet in real life in the Global Campus Program. 300 high school students from Utah and Korea are paired up and get to know each other by mail before meeting face-to-face in Utah. Now in its 10th year, the initiative invites visiting students to tour the U’s campus and meet with academic advisors.
The Global U Custom Programs Difference
Our urban campus is a gateway to the American West and fosters unique field study opportunities.
We work closely with our global partners to create a highly curated experience.
Participants work directly with U experts, creating authentic relationships that often endure long after the training ends.
We know participants learn best by doing, so workshops are created to be hands-on and experiential.
