Welcome to Global Connections. We are a community-based, non-profit organization, affiliated with the Pennsylvania State University and the United Way of Centre County. Our mission, which we have been pursuing for over 50 years, is to bring together people of diverse national origins to foster intercultural community and understanding, promote awareness of everyone’s roles as citizens in the wider global community, and facilitate partnerships and resources that enrich the vitality and diversity of the Centre Region.
