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.
