Brief Program Description

The University of North Georgia was created in 2013 by the consolidation of former North Georgia College and State University and Gainesville State College. Developing an understanding of the international environment as a critical component of educating engaged citizens is a common thread which runs throughout UNG’s strategic plan, including students, faculty and staff in its scope.” Advancements toward internationalization in the past several years have been significant within both of the separate institutions, but primarily on the Dahlonega Campus of the former NGCSU. Spurred initially by evolving military requirements to meet the challenges of a global world, the University and its faculty took bold steps to embrace the internationalization effort. The single most significant step came with the creation of the Center for Global Engagement to facilitate the operation of International Students and Scholars, Study Abroad, International Military Programs, and the Federal Service Language Academy. The focus of our talk in the panel will provide details of our successes in each of these areas.
