That the next generation of young people from diverse and underrepresented backgrounds are equipped with the skills, knowledge and global acumen to thrive in the 21st century interconnected world and global workforce.
To ensure diverse students have equitable access to and maximize the interpersonal, academic, and career benefits afforded through global education.
