Institute for Global Engagement
The Institute for Global Engagement (IGE) promotes scholarly and creative collaborations to expand world awareness, deepen intercultural understanding, and foster respect for diversity and difference.
The Institute for Global Engagement is an active network of the many people, offices, programs and committees at SUNY Oswego committed to expanding world awareness and global engagement. The Institute provides a venue for interdepartmental and interdisciplinary collaborations, supports scholarly and creative activities, encourages professional development and student learning, secures funding for initiatives, and recognizes excellence in global engagement for creating a better world.
Membership in the Institute includes anyone contributing to internationalization at SUNY Oswego through related programs, committees, or other projects. Members teach in programs that integrate global, international and intercultural knowledge and skills. They conduct research on international topics or with international collaborators. They mentor students seeking global opportunities, take students abroad, work with international students and visiting scholars, and plan cultural programs for the campus.
