GEO Mission

bannerMerrimack College's Office of Global Education oversees all outgoing international and domestic academic programs from the College from the short-term, faculty-led course like "Fieldwork in the Southwestern U.S." out of the Women's and Gender Studies Department in May to semester programs from Chile to the Czech Republic.

The Office of Global Education is committed to connecting Merrimack students in all academic disciplines to educational opportunities that will deepen their academic studies and understanding of themselves as global citizens whether they study abroad for a semester or on Merrimack’s own short-term programs. Global Education is an investment in Merrimack because when our students return they come with a new understanding of critical global realities, new skills of cultural literacy, and an expanded understanding of themselves.
 
Mission:
  • Enhances and enriches Merrimack students’ academic experience
  • Develops cross-cultural flexibility and empathy
  • Equips students to live and work as effective global citizens
  • Nurtures a campus that is cross-cultural
