The Dean of Global Engagement and the Global Engagement Committee have been charged by the Provost to supervise all Campbell University international group travel, study abroad, and global outreach programs for all Campbell University professional schools and the College of Arts and Sciences.
To grow all types of international education at Campbell University successfully, it is essential to develop well-thought-out programs which integrate with the university mission and curricula and which follow established best practices that prioritize cultural education, use best practices for safety and ethics, mitigate university risk, utilize resources efficiently, and comply with legal regulations.

Campbell faculty, in partnership with The Stevens Initiative and Soliya, have engaged in two pilot courses utilizing COIL (Collaborative Online International Learning). Not only is this a powerful way to connect students to their global peers through technology, but it also provides necessary virtual collaboration skills which will be key to success in a wide array of future careers. Faculty interested in integrating a virtual international component to their students’ on-campus courses should contact GEO for more information.
There are also various professional development opportunities for faculty members including (but not limited to) conferences related to intercultural and international education as well as microcredentials from trusted partners. Interested faculty members should reach out to Global Engagement to discuss their ideas and options.
