What is the Global Guides Program?

A student leadership organization, Global Guides is made up of students who have recently returned from study abroad and international students from our partner institutions studying at Tulane University as visiting students. 

The organization's mission is to create a vibrant globally-aware community in the A.B. Freeman School of Business. The organization works with the Study Abroad & Exchange Office to organize events and programming to promote this mission. 

As a Global Guide, students get first-hand experience through many projects including:

  • Increasing engagement between the Tulane student body and exchange students through the Buddy Program. 
  • Working with the Center for Career Development to help members look towards the future and design a career based on interests. 
  • Promoting the study abroad programs through panels directed towards freshmen and sophomores. 
  • Collaborating as a team to help international students feel more comfortable on Tulane's campus and learn more about what Tulane and New Orleans have to offer. 

The Global Guides' overall goal is to encourage people to expand their horizons beyond what they know. The group shares their experiences and offers guidance to create a globally aware community.
