The Global Pavilion will connect faculty, students, and staff in a vibrant meeting place that will highlight and strengthen Gettysburg's long-standing commitment to preparing students for a changing world.

While it would be impossible to attempt to corral the College’s many expressions of internationalization into one facility, a central location promises tremendous energy and excitement.

By renovating Plank Gym, we will breathe new life into a central and historic building on campus. This Pavilion will be home to our Center for Public Service, our Center for Global Education, an emerging Center for Language and Cross-Cultural Communication, and a new Center for the Study of Global Issues.

Meeting spaces, programming venues, and technologically sophisticated classrooms will be available to departments and programs across campus and will enhance collaboration among academic disciplines and interdisciplinary programs and among academic and co-curricular areas.
