Global Education invites you to 
iCafé – Your Passport to Culture!


iCafé is a virtual trip around the world to discover diverse cultures, exciting celebrations, and savory cuisines. We come together to expand our cultural experience, broaden our global perspective, and connect with our UC San Diego Triton community. In our 2021 - 2022 series, we join our fellow Tritons to explore the places you are from or have been to. The cultural presentations at iCafé are about you. Your travels, your heritage, your culture.

Everyone is invited to be a Cultural Ambassador to share their experiences from across the planet!

Our very popular segment, Travel Trivia, hosted by UC San Diego’s Division of Transportation, will challenge you with fun facts and trivia from around the world with gift cards to the winners! (compliments of UC San Diego’s Division of Recreation) Recreation also hosts our exploration of sports and fitness in the Global Playground segment. iCafé guests are invited to share their favorite recipes, sweet or savory cuisines, and foodie tours from around the world in the Cook Club.

Please join us! If you are interested in offering a short presentation on culture or cuisine for one of our featured countries, please email Debi at dgianni@ucsd.edu. We would love to have you share your experiences.

iCafe is free and open to everyone! Check out our Facebook page for more information and recordings of previous iCafés. Connect with your Triton community at iCafé over travel, trivia, culture, and cuisine. Join us in 2021 - 2022 for all our virtual, global travel adventures and bring a traveling buddy with you. No passport, no mask, no charge!
