Global Engagement and Leadership

As our world becomes increasingly interconnected, having a deep understanding of other countries and their cultures becomes even more crucial.

Through the Gué Pardue Hudson Center for Leadership and Service’s global engagement offerings, you'll learn more about other cultures, experience traditional events, build relationships with peers and develop a sense of cultural humility. The Metro Atlanta area offers many opportunities to engage the wider world without leaving our city. 

"Social Challenges of Our Times" Film Series

Each month, we select —in partnership with various academic disciplines — an engaging film to highlight challenges around the world and explore how the Agnes Scott community can be part of the solution. Previous offerings include "Landfill Harmonic," "Delores," "13th," "A Place at the Table" and "Becoming Incurable."

International Coffee House

Each month, the center partners with the International Student Association to feature an international student's home country and their culture, traditions, and history. Sweet treats from the spotlighted country are provided along with coffee and tea.

Global Festivals in Atlanta

Throughout the academic year, CLS will announce free or discounted tickets to global festivals in the Atlanta area as funds become available. Past festivals have included JapanFest, the Atlanta Greek Festival, the Atlanta International Night Market Festival and the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival.

Global Screen on the Green

Once a semester, students, faculty, staff and community members gather on Woodruff Quad for a family-friendly global film. Past selections have included "Coco," "Moana," and "Brave."
