Intentional Internationalization

On This Page

Intentional internationalization emphasizes the pursuit of intercultural and ethnic understanding, both at home and abroad. This desire for global engagement calls for an active exploration of events, institutions, peoples, problems, and issues within and beyond our nation’s borders in order to promote the peace, joy, and love of God and to help form culturally competent faculty and students.
