The CGE or Center for Global Engagement, a definite component of Seminole campus life, has strived hard to focus on student diversity and to promote global tolerance at FSU. This proffers an opportunity for engagement with foreign students throughout the year with the help of events which are sponsored like the weekly ‘’International Coffee Hour.’’ This event highlights a varied culture every week through international cuisine and there are also many student cultural experts who are present to answer any of the queries that an attendee may have. Most of the cuisine is prepared by these overseas students who are assisted by CGE staff.
The other CGE sponsored monthly event which is popular is the “Engage Your World Intercultural Dialogue Series’’ that aims at bringing together the faculty, staff and students of different backgrounds to hold discussions about the world-wide challenges of today. Some of these topics include police militarization, challenges of international journalism and the laborious task of campaigning for women’s education in Pakistan. The latter has been sparked by the efforts of the 17 year-old youngest ever Pakistani Nobel Prize laureate, Malala Yousafzai.
