Chatham has established cooperative programs with Carnegie Mellon University and Pennsylvania State University. • Chatham Abroad and many graduate programs offer students the opportunity to study around the world. • The Global Focus program engages our students in the study of peoples and civilizations. Each year, our community of scholars promotes a critical and holistic exploration of one specific country or region of the world. The 2010-11 Global Focus program celebrates Turkey. Past regions/countries have included Brazil and West Africa. • Community Involvement. By combining practical learning opportunities with career exploration, Chatham students typically complete thousands of community service learning hours worldwide each year. • Chatham University is located in the heart of the City of Pittsburgh. Students are encouraged to explore the city because it offers many cultural and learning opportunities. To help students explore the city, the Chatham ID card allows students to take city busses for free.
