In our ever-shrinking world, those who are most knowledgeable about international issues will enjoy the greatest success. The Global Studies Residential Academic Program (RAP) promotes global awareness and provides core curriculum classes for Anthropology, International Affairs, Geography, Political Science, and other majors within the College of Arts and Sciences. Our program has a mission to provide incoming Freshmen residents with resources to help with the transition onto campus and to the CU Boulder community.

If you have questions about your housing assignment, please see the Housing FAQ page or contact If you have questions about registration, please be on the lookout for future communications from the university as fall semester planning is now underway. The university is committed to ensuring that students can return to campus in a safe manner. We really appreciate your patience and look forward to seeing you in the fall!

Global Studies RAP provides a Global Experience Trip every Spring.  We hope the opportunity for foreign travel will be open in Spring, 2022. Stay tuned!
