The Global Education Center is the academic office on campus that develops, directs, and facilitates high-quality international academic semester and summer programs for NWC students and faculty. Among our most popular off-campus semesters are our programs in news-making places like Romania and Oman and in the mile high city of Denver. Or, through partnerships with other institutions, students can study in over 28 other international and 5 domestic locations. Even more, students with busy academic schedules can choose to travel the world on one of our faculty-led summer or winter programs.

 Our Mission and Goals

The mission of the Global Education Center (GEC) at Northwestern College is to both advise and assist students and faculty who desire to seek opportunities for growth and reflection that integrate faith, learning and living and to encourage the development of participants as they come to value cultural diversity and a global community.  Additionally, the GEC seeks to raise awareness for those unfamiliar with NWC study abroad opportunities, whether they be semester or summer, so that students from across the campus community learn of off-campus options for connecting knowledge and experience.

The GEC study abroad programs help students:
  1. gain informed understanding of the host culture and its value systems;
  2. reflect critically on their own culture and values;
  3. acquire a global perspective on contemporary issues;
  4. develop beginning or advanced skills in the target language (where appropriate);
  5. connect cross-cultural learning to their vocation and calling;
  6. build self-confidence and cross-cultural competencies through interactions with the constituencies of the host country.
