Global Engagement

 

At NC State, opportunities such as study abroad, internships, service-learning, and undergraduate research expand and enhance a student’s education.  Students who leverage such opportunities tend to achieve higher grades, have higher persistence rates, and become more marketable to potential employers. NC State’s student engagement programs are often an early step to a student’s lifetime success.

Engaging in these opportunities allows students to become members of a globalized, multicultural community.  Learning about other cultures and meeting interesting individuals from around the world expands upon traditional learning.  This prepares NC State students for an increasingly globalized workplace.  NC State provides a rich array of opportunities for students to develop a global perspective and gain cross-cultural skills while receiving a truly international education.
