The Global Education Office

Your navigational tool to the world.

The Hampshire College global education office’s mission is to broaden students’ perspectives and strengthen their intercultural skills in order to prepare them to be critically engaged global citizens equipped to create positive change in the world. GEO accomplishes this by supporting academic and intercultural exchange on campus, in the U.S., and abroad through semester and short-term opportunities. GEO strives to make off-campus opportunities accessible to all students, working across campus to implement best practices in international education in order to create a safe, inclusive, and transformative learning environment.
