INTERNATIONAL REACH – Cross-Cultural Speakers Program

International Reach (Reach) is a cross-cultural speakers program sponsored by International Student Services at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The program places international speakers in schools, campus venues and community organizations for presentations, discussions and/or conversations. It provides interesting opportunities for international students and their dependents to volunteer to share perspectives on their home countries with teachers, students and area residents for the purposes of furthering global education and intercultural dialogue. The main purpose of Reach is to enhance international students’ experience and encourage global awareness and cross-cultural understanding through the sharing of cultural experiences between the international student body and the Madison community.
