Welcome to the Center for Global Engagement (CGE),
a comprehensive student support center at Northwestern University dedicated entirely to improving undergraduates’ abilities to make a difference in the world.
Through an innovative set of interdisciplinary opportunities ranging from study abroad programs to fellowships, CGE builds the capacity of young global leaders to cross borders and partner with communities to produce responsible, sustainable solutions to shared global challenges. Whether students are planning a national conference on human rights or designing an HIV/AIDS prevention curriculum for Ugandan youth, we are committed to helping undergrads attain tangible skills and critique academic theory through experiential learning.
At CGE, we provide students with both professional and academic support. We also fund opportunities for undergraduates to conduct projects abroad or in the states and offer guidance and financial support for co-curricular activities on-campus. Through CGE, students are connected to a network of like-minded individuals at Northwestern and around the world. CGE is actively shaping a new generation of capable, experienced, and compassionate global leaders in a variety of fields.
