Global Business & Culture Club

The Global Business and Culture Club (GBCC) is an organization with the aim to bring people of multicultural backgrounds together to share their diverse experiences to grow personally, academically and professionally. The GBCC sponsors and organizes programs that support academic diversity, enhances professional opportunities for its members, maintains ties with international alumni, promotes Darden to prospective students and offers cultural events to the entire Darden and University of Virginia communities.

Although this organization has members who are University of Virginia students and may have University employees associated or engaged in its activities and affairs, the organization is not a part of or an agency of the University. It is a separate and independent organization which is responsible for and manages its own activities and affairs. The University does not direct, supervise or control the organization and is not responsible for the organization’s contracts, acts or omissions.
