We live in a world that is more interconnected than ever before. Technology, travel advancements, and the forces of globalization make it both easier and more necessary to know how to relate to people of many different cultures, ethnicities, languages, and points of view here at home and abroad. Our future requires that we understand how to negotiate these new frontiers. We live in a global age, and the Wilkes Community College Global Education Program provides support to students, faculty, and the community in how to embrace and navigate our world.

We seek to understand

  • our community and its inter-connectivity to the world.
  • how culture influences thinking and behavior.
  • how to communicate and work with people of other cultures.
