to the National Center for Educational Alliances and the Global Initiative at Bronx Community College.
Global awareness represents an important component of the educational experience at Bronx Community College. Our vision is to graduate students who are prepared to live within, profit from, and contribute to a 21st century global environment marked by diversity, change and expanded opportunities for learning and growth. To realize this vision, we offer a multi-dimensional global program that brings global learning into the classroom and supports relevant co-curricular activities.
We encourage our students to participate in study and volunteer service abroad, to complete academic courses that expand global perspectives, and to join in several of the co-curricular events and clubs sponsored by the College.
The National Center for Educational Alliances facilitates BCC’s Global Initiative by working with students, faculty, and staff to promote global learning across the curriculum. The Center also facilitates connecting curricular and co-curricular activities (including study and volunteer service abroad) and creating linkages to the international communities across the city. NCEA works closely with other departments on campus to form interdepartmental collaborations to strengthen global learning across the campus.
The Center has also been a leader in national and international educational initiatives, including our ongoing work in South Africa.
