The Institute of Global Engagement's mission is to engage Champlain College students with a world of interconnected systems, cultures and futures through interdisciplinary inquiry. By introducing global elements into all classrooms, the IGE has made global learning a core element of Champlain's interdisciplinary curriculum and education.
The IGE also is home to the College's Global Studies Minor, which can be pursued by students in any major.
Outside the classroom environment, the IGE sponsors speakers, workshops, conversations and events on campus with global themes, in addition to efforts to host international visitors and provide globally-themed professional development for faculty.
For any questions regarding enriching your student experience through study abroad and international exchanges, contact the Office of International Education.
The IGE often collaborates with the Office of Diversity & Inclusion and other diversity-related work on campus. For questions regarding specialized support services for underrepresented populations and diversity resources, contact the Office of Diversity & Inclusion.
The IGE also collaborates with the Center for Service & Civic Engagement on community and service events on campus. For questions regarding service learning, mentorship opportunities throughout the greater Burlington area, local partners and ways to get involved in the community, contact the Center for Service & Civic Engagement.
