Global Student Resources

Global Students Programs and Development (GSPD) is a department dedicated to seeing global students thriving in a more globally minded community

We exist to serve, equip and empower global students toward whole-person, intercultural development. We do this by:

  • Providing transition services to California and Biola University, including orientations and workshops
  • Connecting global students to a network of university and community resources
  • Facilitating community-building opportunities among global students
  • Empowering students in intercultural identity development through community groups and leadership development
  • Offering cultural awareness events for the entire Biola community

Our department serves both undergraduate and graduate global students. Browse the menu on the right to find important information on the resources our community has to offer. You can also contact our department at for any specific questions and concerns.
