Global Learning Education Abroad: Core Values

Advancing Scholarship

Study abroad is an integrated part of the Cornell experience. A strong collegiate foundation allows for a formative short-term program, semester, or year that will only serve to amplify and extend an already excellent education.

High-Impact Global Learning

Life in a different cultural context challenges every underlying assumption. Encounters inside and outside of the classroom allow students to build critical life skillscritical thinking, problem solving, flexibilitywill distinguish students long after their college career.

Intercultural Understanding

Daily interactions with diverse cultures allow students to build skills in communication and collaboration across different social and cultural differences. Immersion in a foreign culture generates curiosity and results in a deeper, more engaged inquiry of the world.

Access to All

We believe international study is something that can and should be experienced by everyone. We boldly pursue full inclusion as a central component of our values and our approach to the world around us and each other. We strive to provide a platform for success for all.
