Signature Programs

The happiness and well-being of all international students at Mount Holyoke is very important to us! The McCulloch Center for Global Initiatives offers a number of special programs designed to make your stay at the College and in the U.S. both culturally enriching and a lot of fun.  There are also a number of student organizations with a global focus that we encourage you to check out and perhaps join.

For more information: contact Donna Van Handle, Dean of International Students.
