CUA - A Globally Engaged University

The Center for Global Education (CGE) at the Catholic University of America (CUA) fosters a sense of international community that builds on the university's strong intellectual and Catholic mission. CGE coordinates and facilitates university-wide global education by sponsoring international exchanges of students and faculty and serving as a resource for departments and schools on campus that undertake international initiatives. In coordinating international initiatives, CGE advances the international character of the university by promoting, supporting, and developing a wide range of international and intercultural educational opportunities for members of the CUA community
