Our Vision is to prepare our students for the complexity of a changing world by fostering cross-cultural competence and encouraging global citizenship. We accomplish this vision through tailoring individualized experiences beginning at the campus, extending to the region, and connecting to the global community.


The Office of Global Engagement (OGE) promotes UNCP abroad, supports international degree-seeking and exchange students, and administers cooperative degree and non-degree agreements with a number of partners. OGE also creates, offers, and manages Study Abroad opportunities throughout the globe while offering students and parents support. OGE oversees the English Language Institute (ELI), which provides English as a Second Language (ESL) instruction, and OGE creates opportunities for student engagement with the local community.
