We are grateful to the Office of the Provost for supporting this themed year and to the members of our steering committee for their commitment to the success of the Year of Pitt Global. Our aim was to generate awareness of the University's extensive international connections and impact; to foster cultural awareness and understanding; and to mobilize new global initiatives and partnerships. Pitt campuses, schools, units, and communities actively engaged in collaborative dialogue and activities across Pennsylvania and around the world to strengthen and enhance our international connections and understanding.
In academic year 2018-2019, the Year of Pitt Global celebrated Pitt being at home in the world and the world finding a home here at Pitt. This site highlights the ways in which Pitt’s students, faculty, staff and alumni integrated international perspectives that advance knowledge and innovation while fostering cultural awareness, worldwide partnerships, and life-changing research.
