SOE Global

In the School of Education (SOE) at UNC Greensboro, we are dedicated to global engagement. Our dedication to global engagement is supported by the SOE Global initiative, which is a network of resources and services specifically designed to help promote and facilitate global engagement in the SOE.

Activities and functions of SOE Global are overseen by the SOE International Committee.

International Faculty and Staff Network

The International Faculty and Staff Network works in collaboration with the University Teaching and Learning Commons  and International Programs Center to create resources and provide networking opportunities for international staff and faculty while also supporting internationalization efforts across campus.
