Our Mission

The mission of the Center for Global Engagement (CGE) is to serve Marymount University faculty and students by providing thought leadership, administrative support, and academically-based international programming that foster the development of the skills, knowledge, and attitudes needed to be active, informed, and culturally sensitive citizens in the global community.

Our Primary Functions

  • To identify and develop quality and accessible international programs which promote global perspective, creativity, discovery and excellence in higher education.
  • To advance Marymount’s internationalization efforts through identifying international professional development opportunities for faculty, promoting opportunities for global programming collaboration between academic departments and non-academic offices, and by expanding global programs and partnerships.
