Hemispheres: The International Outreach Consortium

Connecting to the larger world. Transforming old ideas into new. Providing innovative approaches to world studies.

Hemispheres, the international outreach consortium at the University of Texas at Austin, offers a broad educational program to increase knowledge and understanding of Western Europe; Latin America; the Middle East; Russia, East Europe, and Eurasia; and South Asia. Using the resources of one of the nation’s largest research institutions, we work with educators to address critical needs and to supplement existing knowledge of the world around us.

We are actively involved in content-based teacher training, standards-aligned curriculum development, and the presentation of instructional resources in a variety of formats and levels.

Using our funding sources wisely, we are able to provide the majority of our services for no or little cost. With our network of campus affiliates and partners, we can expand our services to provide comprehensive services to a wide variety of audiences on an almost limitless number of topics.
