Interested in hosting an event in the Global Hub?

Students and faculty are encouraged to reserve space in the Global Hub for their events and programming that focus on international and global topics. We have five bookable spaces that can be reserved individually or in any combination. Click here to find out more.

What types of events/programming can be held in the Global Hub?

In order to maintain the Global Plan’s goals and initiatives, requests for events and programs should be student-centric, have an international or global focus, and fall under one or more of the following criteria:

  • Aim to expand participants’ perspectives through global awareness and/or cultural empathy
  • Inform and/or enhance participants’ knowledge of another geographic region, culture, or language
  • Support participants in their academic pursuits towards earning the Global Distinction; completing degrees or certificates in international/global areas; and/or participating in international civic engagement, global experiential learning, or other professional development opportunities
  • Foster networking and relationship-building among domestic and international students, faculty, and staff

The Global Hub is not designed for large group gatherings, such as receptions, especially during times of the year when students are on campus. The space is open to Posvar Galleria and the second floor study spaces, so noise levels are an issue. In times of the year when classes are not in session, reservation requests of this nature will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Additionally, all requested events and programs must be open to the public - private or invite-only events will be denied.

The Pitt Global Hub reserves the right to reject or require amendements to any reservation request.
