Application Process for the Class of 2015
The application process for the class of 2015 begins in the fall. Sophomore applicants navigate the rigorous application process and craft written proposals with the assistance of faculty and current CISLA students assigned to them as mentors. Final proposals are due to the CISLA office in November. A committee of 12 faculty and staff will meet in mid-December to select the class of 2015 and students are notified of the decisions during winter break. The class of 2015 begins its journey through the CISLA program with the required gateway course, Perspectives on Modern Global Society, team-taught by a group of Connecticut College professors from various disciplines.

Students have had the opportunity to engage with foreign diplomats in meaningful dialogue on a variety of global issues.
