Cross Cultural Programs

At UNC, we are committed to inviting our students to learn and grow in their global citizenship through cross-cultural programs! Our goal is to provide opportunities for cultural exchange and experiential learning to prepare our students to be successful in culturally and academically diverse settings.   

Cultural Program Requirement

UNC cross-cultural programs are aimed at building a community of trust and cultural awareness and are open to all UNC international and domestic students in all academic programs.  Participation in the cross-cultural activities also fulfills the cultural program requirement for J1 visa holders. 


Benefits of cross-cultural program participation include:

  • Cultural diversity and global competencies
  • Confidence building
  • Leadership
  • Motivation
  • Interpersonal and listening skills development
  • Professional development and career readiness

Global Buddy Program

The Global Buddy Program creates a mutual learning opportunity between Americans and international students. Buddies help international students and scholars adjust to living in the United States through support and friendship that begins before international students arrive on campus.

We are currently accepting applications for both Domestic and International buddies. If you have any questions or suggestions, please email globalbuddies@unco.edu.
