Wheaton is a global campus

The Center for Global Education was created because Wheaton College understands the need for everyone to develop an international perspective. Read our CGE brochure (pdf) to learn more.

In collaboration with individual students, faculty members, clubs and special interest groups, the Center for Global Education strives to promote global awareness throughout our community and offers opportunities to learn beyond our borders.

We’re proud of where our students come from; our diverse student community represents 72 countries and 39 states. A total of approximately 200 international students, which comprises around 12% of the student body, bring unique perspectives to our campus. This incoming class includes students from Brazil, Colombia, Syria, Mexico, Bhutan and Indonesia. The Center for Global Education is here to help these students acclimate into the broader campus community and to encourage them to explore what the region has to offer.

We’re also proud of where our students are going, and how we help them get there. The Center for Global Education connects students to more than 90 study abroad programs, plus work and internship opportunities, in more than 40 locations around the world. The number of Wheaton students who study abroad is consistently high in comparison to other institutions. In fact, over the last ten years on average 45% of the student body participated in an overseas program of study. Many of our study abroad students go on to win Fulbright Scholarships, Marshall Scholarships and other prestigious awards which allow them to further their international endeavors.
