Global Connect

The GlobalConnect Database is an online international relations management platform designed to capture and showcase information about the global footprint of UC Santa Cruz. The campus community is encouraged to search and browse GlobalConnect to learn more about the partnership agreements, collaborations, networks, and other activities UC Santa Cruz is engaged in throughout the world.

The Division of Global Engagement curates the GlobalConnect database as a resource for the campus community, making efforts to capture complete and accurate information. Please note that the data may not reflect all international activities taking place at UC Santa Cruz.

Faculty, staff, and students at UC Santa Cruz are encouraged to submit additions and updates to the Division at any time by logging in to the GlobalConnect Portal with their CruzID and submitting a Global Engagement Activity Summary Form.
