Office of Global Engagement
Monmouth College's Office of Global Engagement strives to provide meaningful and transformational opportunities for students, faculty, staff and alumni. These experiences aim to facilitate a nuanced discovery of democracy, pluralism, equality and freedom.
By providing well-constructed domestic and international programming, the Office of Global Engagement is committed to creating an institutional culture of discovery, inclusion, diversity and exploration. International awareness and cultural competence are extremely necessary skills personally, professionally and academically for the ever-evolving global community within which we live.
Knowledge creation cannot be confined to the classroom; it is attained through exploration and discovery of one's self and the global community.
