Global Residential Community

Applications for the Global Residential Community are currently closed.

The mission of the Global Residential Community is to engage students, faculty, and staff in the common goals of gaining a global perspective, creating interactive internationally-focused learning opportunities, and forming meaningful intercultural relationships within the USF and San Francisco communities. The GRC provides an opportunity to gain essential skills and knowledge for navigating the reality of today’s multi-lingual, multi-cultural world. 

The GRC program is a collaborative effort between International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS), Student Housing and Residential Education (SHaRE), and various academic departments.

Community Member Expectations

Successful applicants will live in Pedro Arrupe Hall and are expected to attend two GRC meetings and one GRC event in the Spring 2013 semester. All community members are expected to be engaged members of the community. For the 2013/2014 school year, the capstone GRC project will be determined at a community meeting during the Spring 2013 semester. All GRC
members will play a vital role in ensuring the successful execution of the capstone project.

Mandatory GRC meetings are held every Tuesday evening at 7:30pm in the Pedro Arrupe lounge.

Optional weekly dinners, cooked by GRC members, are held every Sunday evening at 6pm in the Pedro Arrupe kitchen/lounge and are open to all GRC members.

Note: At this time no academic credit is provided for this program, however, the applied learning and skill-set development from participating in this type of program is priceless. Students from all majors are encouraged to apply.
