Colorado State University seeks to encourage diversity while increasing global and cultural competency. It is imperative that all students acquire knowledge of, and sensitivity to, global issues. This knowledge and experience will enable students to participate fully in tomorrow’s workforce that will be even more ethnically and culturally diverse than it is today. Our office encourages greater diversity in education abroad programs, particularly among students of color. Your participation on an education abroad program makes you competitive for graduate school and in the work place. Our staff will work with you to identify programs and locations to fit your needs and help prepare you for your international experience.
