Global Education

    SCC wants its students to be well prepared for a changing world of work.

    In 2003, the Global Education Committee composed and presented a position paper to the SCC Board of Governors, supporting the practice of infusing global perspectives into instruction and providing other educational opportunities for students and staff. The Board of Governors responded to this proposal with a resolution affirming support of the global education initiative. The Global Education Committee then developed a Global Education Plan for 2005-2007.  Many of the goals of that plan have been undertaken or completed.  The plan is being updated for future years.  Meetings of the Global Education Committee are held quarterly.

    The College is a member of the Midwest Institute for International Intercultural Education

    The College also is a member of
