Broadening Our Faculty’s Skills in International Education
HCC recognizes the importance of preparing its students, and students everywhere, to work and live in a global community. That effort starts with our faculty. As educators, our faculty has access to many programs and services to support international education—in the classroom and abroad.
A Variety of Sources
Education today—for effective intellectual and professional development—must reflect diverse and global perspectives. HCC internationalizes its educational environment through its Center for International Education. While the CIE serves our students—foreign and U.S.—with international learning opportunities, it also acts as a gateway for HCC professors to gain knowledge, skills and experience for teaching in today’s globally interdependent world.
