What is the Global Ambassador Program?

The Global Ambassador Program (GAP) is a new international friendship program that aims to foster intercultural dialogues among Columbia's diverse student body, as well as connect students from different social identities, cultural backgrounds, and class years. It provides a safe(r) space for discussing topics such as culture shock, communication styles, intercultural conflict styles, social perceptions, and social (dis)comfort.
