CGE Mission Statement

The Center for Global Engagement (CGE) facilitates international and cross-cultural experiences for students faculty, staff and the greater community in order to better integrate the University of North Georgia into the globalized world.

Welcome from the CGE Executive Director

The Center for Global Engagement (CGE) is the University of North Georgia's (UNG) connection to the world. The CGE is home to International Student and Scholar Services, Study Abroad Services, the Federal Service Language Academy (FSLA), Military International Programs, International Internships, and International University Partnerships. All of these sectors operate with the focus of providing international learning opportunities to the UNG students and faculty who desire to enhance their cross-cultural perspectives and global understanding. These programs validate the CGE mission of facilitating international and cross-cultural experiences for students, faculty, staff, and the greater community in order to better integrate the University of North Georgia into the globalized world.

UNG sends more than 300 students each year all across the world. Studying abroad is a great way to obtain personal and intellectual growth, career inspiration, work experience, language acquisition, and intercultural understanding. Study abroad changes lives, and the work of the CGE is guided by our commitment to promoting access to study abroad opportunities for our growing and diverse population of students. We strive to provide outreach, service, scholarship and financial information, and academic support to students considering studying abroad. Our study abroad advisors can assist you in finding the perfect study abroad program for your personal and/or career aspirations. The CGE offers access to more than 70 programs in over 100 countries around the world.

The CGE also assists international students, scholars, and faculty with transitioning from their home country to the United States. UNG hosts over 200 international students from more than 40 countries. The CGE international student advisors are trained and experienced in cross-cultural counseling and U.S. immigration regulations. The services include advisement, counseling, and information on the admissions processes such as immigration, academic issues, taxes, and even personal issues. Our staff is comprised of experienced educators who have a sound understanding of various global issues, trends, and educational systems, as well as possessing expertise in immigration regulations that affect one's entry and stay in the United States.

Whether you are interested in our world-class summer language immersion programs (Federal Service Language Academy), wanting information about setting up a program, or international academic institutions looking to partner with UNG, we want to speak with you. Our website will provide you with contact information, immigration regulations, application information, and university policy. It is designed to give important information that will make your studies or association with UNG more beneficial.

The CGE looks forward to working with international students, domestic students seeking to study abroad, students wanting an international internship, high school students interested in learning strategic languages in the FSLA, and potential international partners. For incoming students, I encourage you to contact the CGE soon after reaching campus so that we can meet you, answer your questions, and direct you to advisors who will make your stay at UNG a successful and inspirational experience. Please explore our website and let us know if you need further assistance or information.

It is our pleasure to welcome and serve you at the CGE.

Sincerely,

John Wilson, Ed.D.

Internationalization Plan

Currently under revision, the university's internationalization plan helps faculty, staff, and students become more aware and develop an understanding of being part of a globalized community. 

History of the CGE

The University of North Georgia (UNG) is an institution whose students, faculty, staff, and graduates understand cultural differences, collaborate across cultures, and value international engagement. The University was created in 2013 by the consolidation of former North Georgia College and State University and Gainesville State College. The resulting institution is a sprawling, multi-campus institution that serves approximately 17,000 students in predominantly the Northeast region of Georgia. Under the umbrella of the new University, the international missions of both institutions are strengthened, and together the institutions are able to expand the presence of the Center for Global Engagement to serve and include all campuses.

Advancements toward internationalization in the past several years have been significant within both of the separate institutions but primarily on the Dahlonega Campus of the former NGCSU. Spurred initially by evolving military requirements to meet the challenges of a global world, the University and its faculty took bold steps to embrace the internationalization effort. The single most significant step came with the creation of the Center for Global Engagement to facilitate the operation of International Students and Scholars, Study Abroad, International Military Programs, and the Federal Service Language Academy. The CGE supports all campuses and is based in Gainesville and Dahlonega. Both study abroad advisors and international student advisors are stationed in these two offices and support the function of the CGE on all campuses. Driven by the CGE, UNG has established a goal of doubling the number of study abroad students to 418 students studying abroad from all campuses by the end of 2019, in conjunction with Generation Study Abroad. The CGE hosted approximately 180 F1 and J1 students and scholars in 2015. This has increased steadily since 2009 when the total was only 73 students. The CGE expects continued growth in all areas and will continue to demonstrate a strong commitment to the creation of global citizens and internationalization efforts across campuses and curriculum areas.
