About the CRGE

The Center for Research on Global Engagement was created in the Fall of 2015 to facilitate, support, and promote scholarship on global engagement.

Elon has long been recognized nationally as a practitioner of global engagement by the Center of International Education in its “Open Doors Report” for study abroad participation, by The Chronicle of Higher Education for student Fulbright grant recipients, by NAFSA as a recipient of the Senator Paul Simon Award for Campus Internationalization, and by the Princeton Review as “#1 in Study Abroad.”

The Center for Research on Global Engagement aims to foster high quality scholarship related to research on global engagement on campus, as well as develop national and international partnerships, establish and share researched best practices in global education, enhance our position as a leader in global education, promote the integration of global education into the Elon curriculum, and support Elon’s mission to prepare students to be global citizens.

The creation of the Center for Research on Global Engagement is consistent with Elon’s previous strategic plan, “The Elon Commitment”, and the new strategic plan, “Boldly Elon”.
