Through a commitment to embracing our differences, we create a more vibrant, inclusive learning community.
The Center for Global Education and Diversity celebrates the experiences and identities that make us unique. By supporting underrepresented members of our campus, we create opportunities for all of us to grow and thrive.
Our doors are open to all. We offer practical assistance, friendly guidance and a supportive space. We also collaborate with the Multicultural Student Coalition to plan and present multicultural programs, projects and events for the Wilkes University community.
The killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Rayshard Brooks and Ahmaud Arbery rocked the nation and lead to honest conversations about how the nation can resolve racial divide. At Wilkes, it led to a semester of advocacy, peace and unity.
If you’re interested in expanding the University’s presence abroad and bringing the world to Wilkes, the Office of International Engagement offers a place to share in each other’s languages, cultures and people.
Our first unique exchange program brings Panamanian students, teachers and dignitaries to campus, and we look forward to expanding our cultural exchange opportunities.
The center helped me completely reinvent myself. It has been an experience I could not receive anywhere else. The growth in my personal and professional networks are all thanks to the office.Cindy Peralta Nin ’21 | Criminology Major, Global Coffee Hour Coordinator
