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.

Multicultural Outreach

Every year, more and more students are heading to foreign lands to study. Yet the percentages of African American, Hispanic, Asian/ Pacific Islander American, and Native American students studying abroad are significantly lower than the percentages for these students in U.S. higher education enrollment. (Data Tables). However the study abroad experience is important for all students.

The Multicultural Services and Student Affairs offices (Black Student Union, Latin American Student Association, MEChA, etc.) can play an important role collaborating with international students and staff in outreach to U.S. students about the importance of learning about cultures and studying abroad. International students can expose students from diverse backgrounds about their home country and culture. International students may come from a country of a U.S. student's heritage and can address the issues that ethnicity may play abroad.
