Ripon College, founded in 1851, is a Phi Beta Kappa residential liberal arts college of about 1000 students that emphasizes excellence in teaching and close student – faculty collaboration. Ripon’s interdisciplinary Global Studies program was established in 1994 in order to provide students with an understanding and appreciation of the full breadth and depth of challenges and opportunities presented by the accelerating interdependence of nations and peoples in the contemporary era. Courses in the program support a college – wide distribution requirement and also sustain a major in Global Studies. Majors (currently about six per year) develop the knowledge and skills needed to function as effective and responsible global citizens and leaders.
