Office of Global Engagement

What is the Office of Global Engagement?

Global Engagement supports students in connecting with their peers through unique experiences that help them commit to causes that can change their communities. We also guide students through projects and programs that help them to add context to their world in new and exciting ways so that they can begin to create a platform to grow from for the rest of their lives.


Our Mission:

The Office of Global Engagement (OGE) leads students in integrated learning opportunities by guiding them through intentional reflection on cultures different than their own, service to their local and global communities, and diverse perspectives that enhance their view of the complex and ever changing world around us.

Community Engagement

Community Engagement integrates service to the greater community with classroom instruction, connects service to academic content, and encourages personal reflection. Community Engagement also supports a number of programs allowing students, faculty, staff, alumni, and other Centenary Community members to perform meaningful service throughout the local and global community.

Intercultural Engagement

Intercultural Engagement promotes and encourages the exploration and appreciation of different cultures on our campus and around the globe. Intercultural Engagement also administers exchange programs for faculty and students between the College’s many exchange partners.

Diversity Programming

Centenary College of Louisiana values human diversity in all its richly complex and multi-faceted forms, whether expressed through race and ethnicity, culture, political and social views, religious and spiritual beliefs, language and geographic characteristics, gender, gender identities and sexual orientations, learning and physical abilities, age, and social or economic classes.
