Office of Global Engagement​


Not all classrooms have four walls.  Where will your next classroom take you?

Flights around the world

The Office of Global Engagement at LaGrange College is responsible for providing the campus community with needed resources, guidance, and services for developing international education programs and partnerships. 

With over 300 approved study away programs, LaGrange College students have the opportunity to study abroad in over 30 countries or here in the U.S. for a full academic year, a semester, summer session, or Maymester.  Study Away is an integral part of the LaGrange College experience and one that we want to make accessible to every student through international internships, exchange programs, short-term faculty-led courses and long-term study away.

Why Study Away?
Academics and Affordability
Our programs provide opportunities for students to study with scholars and professionals from around the world. You'll find yourself immersed in an enriching cultural experience like no other.  The Office of Global Engagement works with you to make sure your study away experience meets your academic, personal and professional goals. 
While travel itself is often expensive, it doesn't have to be! LaGrange College offers financial aid options that help make studying away a reality for you. Students traveling in their sophomore or junior year can apply for the Smith Travel Grant to help support their study away experience.

Cultural Exchange

The Office of Global Engagement provides immigration services to international students who study on our campus. International students are important in creating a diverse community where students from the U.S. and abroad have the opportunity to live, share, and discover together.
Global Engagement is also where prospective and current students will find answers to questions about maintaining their visa status, employment and travel guidelines, as well as support in adjusting to life in the U.S.  Members of our International Students Club are here to help you get involved on campus and in the LaGrange community.
