Intercultural Activities

Juniata supports a number of student organizations and co-curricular activities that facilitate intercultural learning. Students may choose to live in the Global Village, which brings together diverse students with interests in world issues into common residences for intentional living and learning communities. The Global Alliance is a new student organization open to all Juniata students intended to provide a forum for exchanging ideas and for planning and participating in activities. French, German, and Spanish Clubs sponsor cultural events and join faculty in hosting language tables in the college dining hall and Global Village residences. The "Model United Nations Club" sponsors international negotiation simulations and field trips for students interested in foreign policy and world affairs. The Iota Chapter of "Sigma Iota Rho", a national honor society "to promote and reward scholarship and service among students and practitioners of international studies and global relations and to foster integrity and creative performance in the conduct of global affairs," honors successful students in International Studies. Other clubs like the Muslim Students Association, Chinese Club, and Russian Club have grown out of student interest in world cultures and are instrumental in the success of such activities as the Chinese New Year dinner, film series, lectures, and other intercultural learning activities on the campus.
