Global Programs

Chicago State University College of Education believes "it takes a village to raise a child, but it takes a global village to prepare a teacher." The College of Education has a global partnership and strives to develop strong global partnerships with many nations.  One of the goals of The College of Education is to truly become a global College by providing the resources and support needed to build transformative and strategic partnerships around the world.
