Engage the Stories; Participate in the Transformation.
For more than 30 years, the Center for Global Education at Augsburg College has provided cross-cultural educational opportunities that foster critical analysis of local and global conditions so that personal and systemic change takes place leading to a more just and sustainable world.
Programs are offered in Central America, Cuba, Mexico, the Netherlands, and Southern Africa. We also work with partner organizations to create programs in other areas of the world including Bolivia and Vietnam.
CGE programs are intensive. They are experiential. CGE programs offer breadth. And depth – lots and lots of depth. Our participants engage with multiple perspectives and listen to the voices of the marginalized. We strive to create an environment where diversity is respected and where students, faculty, and staff encourage the discussion and responses to various forms of oppression such as racism, sexism, homophobia, economic inequality, xenophobia, and classism. Our programs provide opportunities to expand your worldview and to challenge your perceptions about global justice and human liberation.
CGE is a member of the following professional organizations: Diversity Abroad, The Forum on Education Abroad, NAFSA: Association of International Educators, Institute for International Education (IIE), and the Association of International Educational Administrators (AIEA).
