Since 1982, CGEE has customized international programs throughout the world for hundreds of organizations and institutions. We work with university faculty and staff, religious institutions, non-profit organizations, and other groups, to select your research topic. Then, we create an engaging, community-based learning experience. Most are 1-3 weeks in length, but we offer long-term programs as well.
