Being Global Ready
Now, perhaps more so than before, we see how truly interconnected the world is. For our Pitt students, regional campus students included, it is important to take advantage of the opportunities to be globally engaged. Regardless of future career path, I believe that through global opportunities, our students will be prepared to embrace the future as leaders and change-makers.
