Welcome to the Office of Global Initiatives

 

I am delighted to welcome you to the Office of Global Initiatives (GI) at Bellevue College.

The Office of Global Initiatives role is to become a powerful catalyst in campus wide comprehensive internationalization efforts. The Office works on instilling a global perspective in our students by exposing them to other countries, cultures and languages; it creates avenues and crafts opportunities for international faculty and staff development and internationalization of curriculum; and fosters partnership building with institutions of higher education around the world.

These initiatives reflect the awareness that internationalization has to become more inclusive by focusing on both mobility and curriculum. As a vibrant, essential unit in the College, we actively engage locally and globally by providing service and opportunities for student, faculty and staff.

I also invite you to read a summary of GI’s Strategic Plan – a road map for comprehensive internationalization at BC  (click here to view the “Road Map to Comprehensive Internationalization” chart).

Sincerely,

Shpresa Halimi, Ph.D.
Director
