Global education is central to the mission of Bloomsburg University, which states that the university “prepares students for personal and professional success in an increasingly complex global environment.”

Multicultural and global competencies, including foreign language acquisition, have gained enormous value in an increasingly interconnected world. Study abroad fosters the development of culturally perceptive citizens who engage effectively with local and global communities.

The goal of the Office of Global and Multicultural Education is to help all students take advantage of the opportunity to live and learn in a new and different cultural context with a commitment to safety and affordability.
