What is our goal?
Our goal is to promote a broader world view for students that includes an understanding and appreciation of diversity and knowledge of other cultures.
How could you benefit from the program?
W.H. Auden 20th-century English poet said, ''civilization should be measured by the degree of diversity attained and the degree of unity retained''. We at GFC believe that being exposed to various cultures can be of tremendous benefit to all the students who engage in this program. An international experience provides greater personal marketing capabilities for the student seeking employment, and gives them exposure to different styles of academic instruction and training.
