Global Learning

International Focus, Individual Impact

At Global Learning, we advocate for every member of the college's faculty, staff, and student population to engage in intercultural experiences. To support this goal, we provide a wealth of programs and events to promote access and equity to these encounters. We facilitate these opportunities in many ways: within the classroom, through international admissions and student services, study abroad courses, virtual exchange curriculums, English language learning for immigrant students, partnering with worldwide institutions, and more.

“It's not like a typical community college. They have a lot of facilities that you would find at a 4-year school. Plus, the class sizes are small, the quality of class is high, and the cost is low.”
