Exploration, Discovery, and Global Engagement (EDGE)

Students in EDGE@Baridon are often beginning their process of self-discovery or are passionate about exploring and engaging in the world around them. EDGE@Baridon challenges students to find what matters to them and provides them with the tools to make a difference through active global learning.

EDGE@Baridon is designed both for students still trying to select their course of study and for those who already have an appreciation for and desire to gain global learning skills and competencies that will make them effective in today’s interconnected world. EDGE@Baridon will expose students to new ideas, cultures, and experiences, allowing all students to make new discoveries about themselves and awaken as culturally-competent global citizens. EDGE@Baridon is supported by the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences. You can find room dimensions and take a virtual tour of Baridon Hall here.
