Center for Global Education

The Center for Global Education is dedicated to the development of academic and immersion programs throughout the world and to the creation of an educational environment at home and abroad where students are challenged and inspired to enhance their social and intellectual awareness by exploring different cultures, lifestyles, values, and beliefs.

The Center supports the Vision, Mission, and Values of the University of providing a global perspective to educate leaders from the United States and from other countries who will fashion a more humane and just world.
