Global Studies faculty members are proud to announce the renaming of its Global Citizenship Scholarship to the Karen Dalke Memorial Global Citizenship Scholarship. “Our beloved colleague and Global Studies faculty member Karen Dalke, who tragically passed away this summer, was a world citizen, enthusiastic international traveler, advocate for cross-cultural understanding and a passionate champion of students, especially first generation and non-traditional students.
