Dorothy R. and Norman E. McCulloch Center for Global Initiatives
Promotes, coordinates,and implements Mount Holyoke's commitment to educate all students for careers and citizenship in a global world
Mount Holyoke College has a long tradition of international engagement. It offers a rich array of curricular programs with an international dimension and has a highly diverse international student body and faculty. In such an internationally diverse community, students deepen their understanding and appreciation of other cultures and countries, reexamine their own values and views, and gain confidence and competence in living in a global world.
Inside and outside the classroom, Mount Holyoke provides learning opportunities that advance students' understanding of global issues. Many departments and programs offer courses that analyze important aspects of globalization. In addition we teach a dozen languages, and Mount Holyoke students can learn less commonly taught languages through the Five College Center for the Study of World Languages.
Mount Holyoke's commitment to educate students for global citizenship is the driving force behind the McCulloch Center for Global Initiatives. The center advances both on- and off-campus intellectual engagement with the global problems and challenges of the twenty-first century. By expanding students' learning opportunities abroad and establishing partnerships with universities abroad, and through its Carol Hoffmann Collins'63 Global Scholars-in-Residence program, conferences, colloquia, and team-taught courses, the center is weaving global education into the fabric of every student's education at Mout Holyoke.
