Mission and Goals

The Center for Global Education was established in 2004 to direct and promote the various international initiatives of the college.

As part of its core mission and liberal arts foundation, Edgewood College aspires to promote in students knowledge and experience of global dynamics in the contemporary world, the ability to analyze and to value other cultures, and the skills to become effective global citizens. To achieve this, Edgewood engages its faculty, students, and staff in the ongoing process of integrating a global perspective into all facets of campus life, linking curricular and co-curricular initiatives and creating a more globally-oriented learning community.

The college’s goal is a globalized Edgewood campus. This includes a curriculum with international and global content, broad student participation in study abroad, a significant presence of international students on campus, co-curricular activities around global themes, and strong faculty and staff engagement in global programs. The Center’s efforts are devoted to educating globally competent students who have the cross-cultural skills to know and esteem others’ perspectives, a deep understanding of global interdependence, and acceptance of difference. The Center concerns itself with six areas:

  • Curriculum
  • Study abroad
  • Faculty development
  • International students
  • Co-curricular activities
  • Initiatives to specific world regions
     

The Center’s co-directors assist faculty to incorporate a global perspective into the curriculum, plan co-curricular activities that will reinforce what students learn in the classroom, and offer opportunities for students and faculty to participate directly in a global experience through study abroad and faculty/student exchange.
