Global Passport Program helps students become culturally diverse and aware.
OGE’s Global Passport Program encourages domestic students to earn stamps for their “cultural passport.” Stamps can be earned by having conversations with international students, attending a study abroad fair, participating in a cultural café event, or visiting local cultural events with the Office of Global Education. Students write an essay about what they have learned and are then eligible to win a $250 book credit and be eligible for the Ambassador of the Year award with a $200 prize.
