International Education

The goal of the International Education program 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 and online. It blossoms with study abroad, which allows students to participate in academic travel to countries around the globe. Faculty members are active participants in the endeavor, through academic work, organizing special programs, and in teaching study abroad classes. Ultimately, international education prepares students for active participation in the global village.
