For over 25 years Cathy Dauler has been a volunteer teacher for the English as a Second Language Program (ESL) administered by Global Connections.
In the fall of 2010, Global Connections began celebrating its 50th anniversary. Started by community members to help international students and their families transition into life in the United States, it was first called International Hospitality Council. The name was changed in 2005 to Global Connections.
The programs offered by Global Connections are meant to provide newcomers from around the world with a chance to meet residents and other internationals in the State College area as well as to learn about American culture. Learn more about friendship families, conversation partners, tax assistance, the international speakers program and English classes at www.global.psu.edu/gc . Global Connections provides many opportunities for intercultural sharing and learning.
