Simple acts of generosity -- In Naples, Gift of Coffee to Strangers Never Seen
NAPLES, Italy — One azure morning in December, Laura Cozzolino arrived at her corner cafe in central Naples and ordered her usual: a dense espresso, which arrived steaming hot on the dark marble counter. She lingered over the aroma, then knocked it back in two quick sips.

Expanding global opportunities at UNC
Introduction

The mission of the Center for Global Initiatives is to expand global opportunities at UNC through collaborative programs + projects and competitive awards + fellowships that connect people across borders and disciplines.

We pursue this goal through a wide range of initiatives such as directing UNC’s Fulbright Program, funding faculty to develop new global courses, empowering students to conduct ambitious research and internships abroad, and connecting North Carolina K-12 classrooms with UNC’s global resources.

We are especially interested in opening access to global opportunities to students, faculty, and staff traditionally underrepresented in this sphere. Our vision is that everyone at UNC has access to such opportunities and can seize them if desired.

Because our work complements the many other global units on campus that focus on thematic and area studies, study abroad, service learning, career services, and external relations, the U.S. Department of Education recognizes us as one of only nine National Resources Centers in Global Studies.
