Center for Global Education Logo
The Center for Global Education promotes international education to foster cross-cultural awareness, cooperation and understanding. Living and working effectively in a global society requires learning with an international perspective.

We promote this type of learning by collaborating with colleges, universities and other organizations around the world.
Why Support Us

The Center for Global Education is involved in many local, statewide, regional, national, and international projects that need your support. Below, you will find a list of many formal current projects and their related websites. Under the link to each site is a description of how that site functions within our overall mission statement, and how your support will enable these and other projects to continue to grow and be valuable resources to the field of global education.
