In the extensive research Champlain has conducted over many years with the business community and public-sector organizations, "Global Appreciation" has emerged as an essential competency employers seek in their employees.
Champlain has taken a highly proactive position on cultivating this competency by ensuring that the College has embedded pioneering international learning across the curriculum.
Additionally, Champlain encourages every student to engage in a study-abroad experience, and has designed the curriculum of our majors to support a semester of international study. If you take a semester abroad at Champlain Dublin in the spring of your third year, you will be continuing your Social Work curriculum, and will still graduate on time.
What does this mean to you? You can study in another country for ten days as part of the Core curriculum, or travel to a developing country through the Center for Service & Civic Engagement, or engage in an internship in Dublin as part of a semester abroad on Champlain's Dublin campus.
Experiences living in another country will make your more culturally sensitive, both personally and professionally, and give you a better grasp of the international policies, complexities and power of other cultural narratives.
