Global doorBecker College has established the Center of Global Citizenship on its Worcester Campus. The Center, located on the second floor of the Gilbert R. Boutin Student Center, includes office space for faculty, staff, and volunteers, as well as lounge space for gathering, study, and special events.

With a focus on preparing graduates who are world ready global citizens, Becker has strengthened the integration of global perspectives in academics; created such new offerings as a new course, minor, and concentration in Global Citizenship; and enhanced international recruitment and services.

The College is a member of the tenth cohort of the American Council on Education’s (ACE) Internationalization Laboratory (I-Lab).  Through the I-Lab process, the College has developed a global engagement strategy that supports Global Citizenship as a key attribute of the Becker student experience.
