The goal of international education is to provide Vol State students with a global perspective. It starts in the classroom with new ways of looking at academic subjects. It grows with special international events and speakers on campus. It blossoms with travel-study, which allows students to participate in academic travel to countries across the globe. Faculty members are active partners in the endeavor, through academic work, organizing special programs and in teaching travel study classes. Ultimately, international education prepares students for active participation in the global village.
