Global Classroom: An Interactive Speaker Series

The Institute for Global Engagement (IGE), in collaboration with UW Tacoma's Division of Politics, Philosophy, and Public Affairs (PPPA) and the World Affairs Council Tacoma, present Global Classroom, an interactive speaker series on global issues that matter.

Global Classroom brings to the South Sound community an opportunity to explore in-depth issues of global significance and their local implications. These quarterly moderated conversations feature leading practitioners and scholars who shed light on the complexities of global events and help us understand the impact of these events in the South Sound.
