International Affairs Conversation Partner Program
Global Bobcats, International Affairs’ Conversation Partner program, brings international students together with American students for friendly conversation. Global Bobcats facilitates the sharing of diverse values, common interests, and global perspectives among Texas State students. This volunteer program pairs individuals who commit to be partners for at least one semester. Each pair is assigned by International Affairs and traditionally meets an average of 1 hour per week during the regular semesters (fall and/or spring). The international student and the American student are responsible for arranging their meeting times as well as topics for discussion, outings, activities, or language exchange. This program is free of charge and open to all interested Texas State students of all academic levels. During the current health crisis, Global Bobcats are encouraged to meet virtually in the interest of safety.
