The Globalization Lecture series (GLS) is a weekly 1-hour lecture series open to the Stockton community.  By introducing a variety of global topics across disciplines, GLS aims to increase global awareness and to foster a deep and critical perspective of the global world, developments, and opportunities. Lectures usually take place on a Tuesday or Thursday afternoon at 4:30pm – 5:30pm.  Students who attend receive ULTRA Credit — and enjoy pizzas as well.

JY Zhou is scheduling the weekly GLS lectures for the Fall 2015.  The first lecture will be on 9/10/2015 and the last lecture will be on 11/19/2015. If you would like to share your expertise and experience in global issues with the Stockton community, please contact JY at
