Making Experiential Research Globally Engaging

Making Experiential Research Globally Engaging (MERGE) is an intercultural program designed specifically to meet faculty requests to incorporate the vast and rich collection of perspectives afforded by the international student population at UCO. 

Through MERGE, the International House works with UCO professors to connect MERGE students to help give information and work with other students on a specific topic regarding their particular country.
