So many of today's 'wicked' problems are global. Take the wicked problem of sustainability; the United Nations called for a global partnership when it outlined the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. It takes more than a few nations to create the solutions to such complex problems.

At the Community Research Initiative, we are fully committed to the broader Union drive to ensure a great international and intercultural experience for our students. We want to create an internationally aware, culturally inquisitive student community ready to change the world for the better.
