Center for Global Education

Welcome to the Center for Global Education!

Dr. Cristina Francescon, Director of the Center for Global EducationIn an increasingly global society, it is essential that MU graduates become citizens of the world, participating in experiences both inside and outside of their national borders and comfort zones. The Center for Global Education will foster the development of intercultural competence and global awareness throughout the campus community.

Every Methodist University student can be a member of the global community through Study Abroad programs, activities on campus that present different aspects of international cultures, such as Pangea (MU’s unique performance festival), the International Food Fest, the Foreign Film Festival, and other activities, and continued and on-going conversations about our place in a global world.

Whether it’s for a semester, a summer, or over spring break, there are international travel and learning options available that explore other cultures, languages, countries and locales, such as Italy, United Kingdom, Mexico, Guatemala, Puerto Rico, and the Bahamas.

In the future, the University seeks to increase student engagement in the wide range of on-campus and off-campus community activities supported by the Center, to increase international student enrollment, and to continue to offer quality study abroad programs for our students. Have a look at our Web site and discover the wide range of opportunities offered to all of our students.
