OBS At Governor's School For International Studies

The University of Memphis serves as the host of the Governor's School for International Studies (GSIS), which takes place on the UofM Campus each year during the month of June. This year Operation Broken Silence staff will once agan be partnering with students and faculty during their Nonprofit Service Learning Day. 


The Tennessee Governor's School program was conceived as an opportunity for the best and brightest students in high schools across the state to receive, free of charge, an opportunity for an in-depth introduction into a chosen area of study. 

The GSIS program provides a rigorous introduction to the field of International Studies.  The curriculum provides intensive instruction and research experiences in the political, economic and social systems of the world.  Formal courses; including three credit hours of college coursework; supervised individual and group projects, and experiential learning are part of the program. Seminars and lectures offered by prominent international, national, and local scholars, statesmen, and business executives allow GSIS students to gain extensive insight into international relations, international business, governance, and global issues. An in-depth study of languages, customs, lifestyles, and cultures of various nationalities are also an integral part of the learning experience.
