Examples of Global Learning Experiences at Cornell

Global learning at Cornell has a long tradition and many expressions. There are many examples of internationally-focused courses, study abroad opportunities, majors that require or encourage study or service abroad, internationally-focused majors and minors, and courses of study that have an internationally-focused requirement or opportunity.

There are also numerous co-curricular programs that support global learning: clubs, events, themed housing, internships, international speakers’ series, and visiting scholars. Additionally, Cornell offers a museum with a distinguished collection of art from Asia and other regions of the world, significant internationally-focused library holdings including the Fiske Icelandic Collection and collections from Asia and Europe, a Language Resource Center, undergraduate area studies programs, and community-engaged learning opportunities that focus on global learning.

Funding opportunities through Global Cornell and Engaged Cornell have supported development and spurred creativity, with new courses, engaged learning opportunities, and other study and research abroad programs under development. The Center provides smaller grants on an ongoing basis to support curricular innovation and change.
