The International Education Committee consists of faculty and staff members from every area of the college. The committee’s plan for 2014-15 includes: continued growth of our Scholars of Global Distinction program; increased internationalization of all curricula; a commitment to increase the number of DCCC students who study abroad; refinement of our study abroad processes, procedures and policies; improved utilization of our Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistants to internationalize the campus community; and continued collaboration with other North Carolina community colleges to promote international education opportunities for our students and community members.

Mission:

The mission of the International Education Committee is to promote understanding of our increasingly interdependent world throughout the DCCC community in order to create engaged global citizens.
