The Isabella Cannon Global Education Center (GEC) strives to foster the development of an interculturally-competent and globally-aware campus community. Through its programs, the Global Education Center strives to prepare you for life in a rapidly changing global society within and beyond the borders of the United States.
A hallmark of the university’s strategic plan, The Elon Commitment, is a goal to provide 100 percent access to global engagement. The GEC is committed to this goal by helping you pursue your own global engagement and address any barriers, and by supporting you throughout the process, from when you first start exploring options to when you return home.
If you study abroad, your worldview will change forever. Elon’s 100+ programs prepare you for a lifetime of global understanding and exploration. On study abroad programs, you can take a variety of courses toward your graduation requirements and enrich your experience with research, service, and internship opportunities.
In the twenty-first century, you don’t need a passport to have a global experience. Study USA offers pre-professional development opportunities integrated with immersive, global academic experiences. This expanding list of opportunities allows you to explore diversity of cultures, worldviews, and geography and climate in the United States, while satisfying Elon academic requirements.
