Office of Global Education Organizational Structure

About the Office of Global Education

The Office of Global Education (OGE) coordinates and supervises all of the college’s international programming. The office’s executive director of global education supervises a staff of five additional professionals and two support staff. All global initiatives are housed under OGE, creating a vibrant center that unifies academic and administrative efforts. Faculty members from across the college support the development and coordination of international programming, creating a dynamic combination of centralized and de-centralized management. This assures a high standard of quality control and cross-fertilization among international programs.

Dickinson’s strategic plan articulates its vision for internationalization. It says that the college aspires to create “an educational program of the highest quality and challenge that turns the campus from a single site into the hub of a truly global network. The Dickinson global education model should be characterized by sustained, in-depth study; an imaginative variety of opportunities that reach across disciplines; and close integration of study elsewhere with the program on the home campus.”

Since OGE supervises both study abroad and international student/scholar services, it integrates these areas that are too often bifurcated on college campuses. The OGE is located in the center of campus in the Marc and Eva Stern Foundation Center for Global Education, a state-of-the-art facility that houses the academic departments of East Asian studies, international studies, and international business & management. The Stern Center has four classrooms, a videoconferencing center, the Great Room gallery and lecture hall, and a fully equipped kitchen. It is an ideal space for hosting conferences and special events.

Process for Proposing and Reviewing New Programs

Faculty who are interested in proposing new study abroad programs (including long-term Dickinson or Dickinson Partner Programs, summer programs, or globally integrated programs) will find an outline of the proposal and review process here.  To discuss possible proposals and the submission process, please contact the Office of Global Education.
