About the Center

Our world today has become much smaller with the evolution of technology and the sophistication of modern travel. Students must be well-equipped and prepared to flourish in this increasingly borderless international community. The Center for Global Learning and Engagement provides multiple opportunities for freshmen through senior students to enhance their educational experience. Explore our program offerings.

Mission Statement

The Center for Global Learning and Engagement carries out the university’s academic vision to deliberately and strategically “integrate an intercultural and international dimension into teaching, research, and service functions of the university,” through the creation and maintenance of innovative global learning opportunities, comprehensive guidance, preparation, and advising of students, and the creation of opportunities for faculty development and leadership in international education.
