By introducing global elements into all classrooms, Champlain's Institute for Global Engagement (IGE) has made global learning a core element of Champlain's interdisciplinary curriculum and education.
Our students are exposed to the tools they need to be globally-engaged citizens in today's society. Specifically, the IGE seeks to foster:
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.
The IGE also is home to the College's Global Studies Minor, which can be pursued by students in any major.
Adam Rosenblatt is Assistant Dean for Global Engagement and an Assistant Professor in Champlain College's Core Division, where he teaches interdisciplinary classes on human rights, global studies, and other topics. He holds a PhD from Stanford in Modern Thought and Literature, and has worked at human rights organizations in both the U.S. and Chile. Dr. Rosenblatt's research focuses on the philosophy and politics of human rights, and the use of forensic science in the investigation of atrocities.

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.
