|Indiana University's Global Speakers Service (GSS) is designed to enhance international topics and activities in Indiana's schools and civic organizations – K-12, college, and adult education classes, government organizations, churches, businesses, social clubs, libraries, museums, service clubs, and retirement communities. Within 50 miles of Bloomington, IU faculty, advanced graduate students, and international students are available to make presentations, free-of-charge, on a wide range of international topics to add a global component to any curriculum or program. This innovative outreach program is cooperatively organized by the Global Center and other world area studies centers across the IUB campus. GSS received initial funding from the Indiana Humanities Council through the National Endowment for the Humanities and continues through support from the U.S. Department of Education under Title VI of the Higher Education Act and the Office of the Vice President for International Affairs at Indiana University.
