  Abstract: A key competency required for graduates in today's highly competitive job market is skill in solving science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) based problems in an international context. Increasingly, scientific and technological innovations occur as a result of teams of multinational researchers working in many different global settings. The Global Laboratory at SUNY Oswego aims to provide our undergraduates with these skills by providing 6-8 week STEM-based cutting-edge research experiences at a number of leading research driven universities worldwide (UFPB, UFAL, UFMGS in Brazil; Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India; National Central University, Taiwan; University of Kinshasha, DRC). As a specific example, between 2011-2013, we will take six students per summer to work on cutting-edge astrophysics research projects at the Graduate Institute of Astronomy, National Central University, Taiwan. In this talk, we describe the pedagogical/cultural/cognitive benefits to students and our plans to expand the Global Laboratory.
