The Office of Internationalization & Global Engagement (IGE) utilizes Emerson’s collective talent, energy, human and financial resources to support compelling transformation and change in international education across disciplines and around the world. As one of the five core strategies of the College's strategic plan, global engagement is our goal—and it is also our passion.

Through our work, we strive to provide its students, faculty, and staff with opportunities to connect and collaborate across borders, sectors, and cultures. This work includes: developing Global Portals and exploring partnerships with other like-minded institutions around the world, continuing to provide our students with opportunities to study abroad through our Global Pathways and Exchange programs, and working with the Social Justice Center to ensure that diversity is viewed from both a local and a global perspective.

Our hope is that our students will develop the insights and tools necessary to make change and for realizing their global citizenship.
