FACULTY-LED EDUCATION ABROAD PROGRAMS AT GGC

 

ABOUT

Thank you for choosing to commit your time and energy to providing a high-quality education abroad experience for our students. Study abroad can be one of the most enriching and inspiring experiences of a student's life, and it is arguably the quickest way to prepare students to become global citizens. Through your efforts, you are helping to make these potentially life-changing education experiences a reality for so many students here at GGC.

There are many opportunities for faculty members to engage in education abroad including applying for a teaching position with a USG Goes Global program (USGG) or designing a GGC faculty-led study abroad program.

The information below pertains to education abroad programs designed and executed by GGC faculty members.
