ICGC Welcomes the 2020 Cohort of Scholars!

The 2020 ICGC Scholars, the 32nd cohort, will be welcomed into the community in Fall 2020, with orientation during the last week of August. The 8 new scholars, each from different departments within five colleges and schools at the UMN, come from countries including India, the United States, Lebanon, Brazil, and Colombia. We are excited to bring their energy, knowledge and voices for issues of social justice and global change to the University of Minnesota.
