Learn about the activities of each Global Area Studies Center at UNC, funding opportunities, and public outreach programs.

  UNC-Chapel Hill is one of a very few U.S. universities to house several National Resource Centers funded by the U.S. Department of Education under the Title VI program.  The Global Area Studies Centers cooperate to better serve the University and public by informing them of events, research and funding.  The centers provide services and resources for teaching modern foreign language, research and training in area and international studies and instruction and research related to areas of the world and global issues.  By pooling resources, the centers are able to develop programs that provide a deeper understanding of the world’s regions and of the importance of international education. Special emphasis is placed on offering resources to educators in North Carolina.
