About the Center 

Formed in 2008 as the link between the Churchill Institute and Westminster’s academic programs, the Center for Engaging the World seeks to deliver an educational experience rooted in global understanding.

The Center provides many of the academic components of the Institute, including the Transnational studies major, study abroad opportunities, a faculty scholars program, and cross-cultural programming on campus.

The Center is committed to enhancing the mission of developing leaders in a global community by internationalizing the campus environment, by supporting and expanding community awareness of and respect for cultural diversity, by integrating our growing population of international students into our community, and by increasing the possibilities for students to have a transformational study abroad experience. An endowed directorship of the Center will allow a faculty member the time and resources to ensure that all programs are of the highest quality.
