Established in 2014 by consolidating several areas associated with global campus programming, study abroad, and faculty development, the Office serves as a resource to the college in its mission to educate students for leadership in an increasingly complex global society. Through collaborative programming and curricula, OIE strives to ensure that all students have the knowledge and understanding of culture, language, history, geography, and global perspectives necessary to succeed in a world marked by interdependence, diversity, and rapid change. Harper College is a Board Member College of Community Colleges for International Development (CCID).
Internationalization @ Harper College
Our innovative approach to campus internationalization, Roadmap to the World, consists of three conceptual coordinates that chart the course of our approach to comprehensive campus internationalization:
Counseling Services recognizes the traumatic impact that armed conflict can have, even when we are not physically present or directly involved, and the conflict in Ukraine is surely impacting the mental health and well-being of our campus community. If you are seeking support, please contact us at 847.925.6393 if you would like to speak with a counselor. Or, go to the Counseling Services webpage at: https://www.harpercollege.edu/services/counseling/index.php for other resources. Counseling Services are free to enrolled Harper students. The Counseling Office is located in Building D-204.
Faculty, partners, alums, and allies will all gather in the Avante Hall for a Study Abroad Fair. Stop by the tables to learn about the different opportunities for Study Abroad and global engagement.
