Krewe du Monde Buddy Program

In 2020, the Global Guides founded the Krewe du Monde buddy program to help exchange students transition to life at Tulane. Learn more about the program, look at photos, and apply to be a buddy here!

What is the Global Guides Program?

We are a leadership organization of students who have studied abroad, international students, and students passionate about making Freeman an internationally-minded community. 

Our mission is to create a vibrant, globally-aware community in the A.B. Freeman School of Business by sharing our experiences, making meaningful connections, and partnering with the Study Abroad & Exchange Office to promote our mission. 

Board of Directors

Our Board of Directors is the executive board of the organization. Directors take on a larger responsibility and further develop leadership roles. Directors lead committees of fellow Global Guides and work closely with Freeman Study Abroad & Exchange to execute projects that further the club's mission. 

The Board of Directors positions are:

  • Chairperson presides at all meetings and coordinates the work of the officers and committees. 
  • Director of Finance oversees the organization's approved budget as well as receipts and expenses. 
  • Director of Student Outreach coordinates events for the Global Guides to reach students. 
  • Director of Diversity and Inclusion works to develop more inclusive programming for the Global Guides and Freeman Abroad. 
  • Director of Brand Management works on creating and maintaining the image of Global Guides through social media platforms.
  • Director of Strategic Partnerships cultivates relationships between the Global Guides and campus/ community partners. 
  • Director of Engagement is responsible for the Krewe du Monde Buddy Program, which facilitates the connection between exchange students and Freeman students. 
  • Director of Career Development helps Global Guides, study abroad participants, and exchange students identify how they can apply their experiences to their career and long-term goals. This director works closely with the Career Management Center
  • Director of Community Relations serves as the link between the Global Guides and A.B. Freeman School of Business faculty and staff to coordinate events.
