The Principal Financial Group Center for Global Citizenship

To confidently stride into the world prepared to address pressing global issues, effectively lead diverse teams, or contribute in the global marketplace, individuals must be able to succeed in different cultural contexts and see their own culture from other points of view. The Principal Financial Group Center for Global Citizenship works to ensure those global perspectives and concepts are an integral part of the intellectual and cultural experience of all members of the Drake community.

The Center highlights global issues and perspectives in numerous free and open-to-the-public events featuring thought leaders and diplomats from around the world, provides development resources for both students and faculty, and funds programs such as the Global Practitioner in Residence.

The Center is supported by The Principal Financial Group.

Please check back as fall events will be posted later this month.  If you would like to be added to a distribution list to receive e-mails about upcoming global speakers and other events, please send your e-mail address to denise.ganpat@drake.edu.  Thanks and stay tuned!
