"Semester abroad changed my perspective on the world, helped me discover my passions, and taught me about cultural sensitivity, which I practice daily in my field."

Mental Health Clinical Supervisor, LA County

Global experiences cultivate leadership, learning skills, and ultimately career advancement. In view of today’s complex economies and interconnected societies, cultural competency and a deep global perspective are essential to our students’ success now more than ever. 

During An Unstoppable Campaign for Mount Saint Mary’s University, the Center for Global Initiatives seeks $3 million to provide our students with meaningful global experiences. Learn more.

Student Global Experiences

"It’s important to experience people of other cultures in their homeland. During my semester abroad, I connected with people I wouldn’t have otherwise met. My global experience has helped me communicate more effectively in my role at large institutions."
