University of Pittsburgh "Year of Pitt Global"

The Year of PittGlobal


In the Year of Pitt Global, we celebrate Pitt being at home in the world and promote the University as a global convening point. Our citizens (students, faculty, and staff), communities, campuses, and local and global networks will engage freely in collaborative dialogue and activities that advance interdisciplinary educational and research pursuits and improve the quality of life, health, prosperity and social mobility of people in Pittsburgh and around the world.


The Year of Pitt Global aims to help mobilize and highlight efforts across Pitt to integrate local and international perspectives that advance new knowledge and ground-breaking innovation while fostering cultural awareness, worldwide partnerships and life-changing research.


The Office of the Provost opened a Year of Pitt Global Matching Funds competition in August 2018 and welcomed schools, campuses, departments, and units across the University to submit innovative program and project proposals incorporating international perspectives. With more than $1 million in Year of Pitt Global projects supported by the competition and numerous programs and projects in the pipeline, applications closed in December.

Learn more about the Year of Pitt Global by reviewing the list of projects funded to date. You may also see a list of upcoming events and projects on our event calendar. Check on the status of a project under consideration by contacting Shawn Reming, the Year of Pitt Global Project Coordinator.
