Center for Global Education


The Center for Global Education is comprised of English Language Programs, International Student and Scholar Services and Study Abroad


The purpose of the Center for Global Education is to foster global fluency and engagement. We do this by

  • Providing high quality study away programs;
  • Bringing and supporting international students;
  • Empowering them through immersion in English language, academics, and culture.

English Language Programs

English Language Programs (ELP) provides intensive English language training to international students who are either conditionally admitted to Winona State University due to insufficient English language skills or admitted to the Center to simply improve their English. 

Study Abroad

The Study Abroad (SA) office oversees all aspects of off-campus study, including semester, academic year and faculty-led programs. 

International Student and Scholar Services

International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) provides assistance to international students and scholars, and offers programs that promote global awareness and cultural understanding.
