Center for Global Education
Bringing the World to CSB/SJU - Sending Students Arcoss the Globe
The Center for Global Education is responsible for spearheading the ongoing, comprehensive internationalization and globalization of the College of Saint Benedict and St. John's University. Rooted in Benedictine values and a strong CSB/SJU tradition of international programming, CGE promotes engagement with people, cultures and nations across the world. The Center's mission is to advance the international character of our campuses, and to foster the global perspectives and competencies that are becoming ever more critical in our increasingly interconnected world.
The Center for Global Education is home to two offices, The Office for Education Abroad (OEA) and The Office for Global Programming (OGP), that cooperate with each other and collaborate with other campus departments and entities to carry out the Center's mission. Together they provide cross-cultural learning opportunities that stimulate personal and intellectual growth, encourage critical analysis of local and international environments, and inspire students to go forth as global citizens to influence and improve their world.
The College of St. Benedict and Saint John's University are proud to have been named recipient of the 2012 Simon Award for Comprehensive Internationalization. This prestigious award, named for the late Senator Paul Simon, is presented to approximately three to five higher educational institutions in the country each year for their achievements and ongoing efforts toward campus internationalization. The awardees are selected by the NAFSA Association of International Educators, the world's largest non-profit professional association dedicated to international education.
CSB/SJU will be recognized at the Simon Award Ceremony in Washington, DC, in November 2012. CSB President MaryAnn Baenninger will accept the award on behalf of our institutions and will also participate in a panel composed of presidents of awardee institutions to discuss the future of internationalization and globalization in US higher education.
