Global Studies Summer Institute: Bringing the World into the Classroom

The Global Studies Summer Institute (GSSI) is a three-day program for K-12 educators focused on contemporary global issues and their practical applications for the classroom.

  • Learn from teachers who are integrating global education in the classroom
  • Receive an extensive collection of curricular and informational resources aligned with Wisconsin's Model Academic Standards
