Apply to GELE! What is the Global Engagement and Leadership Experience (GELE)? The Global Engagement and Leadership Experience (GELE) is a two-and-a-half day conference that brings together international and U.S. students to discuss and learn about aspects of global leadership. It is the perfect mix of serious conversations, engaging activities, and practical simulations.
What is FiGE? Foundations in Global Engagement (FiGE; “fee-gee”) is programming for all students who wish to enrich their Penn State experience by developing multinational relationships. A cohort of international and domestic students will participate in a series of events and activities that will become the catalyst for cross-cultural communication and will facilitate the process of learning to appreciate similarities and differences in a multinational group.
Our Community Engagement Programs are designed to connect members of the Penn State and State College community with one another across cultures to foster a greater appreciation and understanding of the rich cultural differences that exist in our region.
