Global Initiatives

Understanding the Rapidly Changing World

Crystal Springs Uplands School's Global Initiatives program provides learning, social and experiential opportunities for students both at home and abroad. The Global Speaker Series, Global Chat, and Student Exchange programs held on campus enable students to learn more about world beyond the school’s borders. CSUS also offers International Internships, Trips, and Semester Away programs allowing students to explore the world where they can learn, teach, and experience life in cultures while integrating closely with the academic curriculum. For more information about this program, contact Director of Global Initiatives Bill Kwong.

Global Speaker Series

The Global Speakers Series brings notable speakers to share ideas and skills related to relevant global topics. This Speakers Series aims to deepen our students' personal connections to the issues of the world and will be featured a few times throughout the school year. Past speakers have included John Roos (former U.S. Ambassador to Japan), Brad Adams (Executive Director of Human Rights Watch's Asia Division), and Nicole Wai Chung Kwan (Adjunct Associate Professor from the Chinese University of Hong Kong).
