Interdisciplinary Center for the Study of Global Change

University of Minnesota

The Interdisciplinary Center for the Study of Global Change (ICGC) is a University of Minnesota campus-wide center that seeks to foster an interdisciplinary and cross-cultural community of faculty and graduate students committed to supporting and advancing research, education and collaborative initiatives related to global change, with a focus on the Global South. We understand the Global South to include communities in Asia, Africa, and Latin America as well as communities in North America, Europe, and elsewhere experiencing marginalization or living precariously in the context of global change. We also emphasize transnational knowledge flows and production. ICGC’s philosophy focuses on critical and interdisciplinary perspectives, globally engaged scholarship, and a recognition of the necessary connection of diversity and academic excellence.
