BeginningsThe Post-War YearsThe New MillenniumStudent Work Off-Campus

At the dawn of the new millennium, Carleton reaffirmed and advanced its commitment to global engagement, with crucial grants fueling a surge in the number of international students and the launch of the Cross-Cultural Studies minor. The Office of Intercultural and International Life and a constellation of cultural student organizations and performing arts ensembles foster a sense of community through an array of cultural programming and events.

Faculty continue to work with students on critical global issues through coursework, field research, and off-campus study. Students study, research, volunteer, and intern around the world through programs facilitated by the Career Center, Center for Community and Civic Engagement, Off-Campus Studies, Student Fellowships, academic departments, and the Mellon-funded Global Engagement Initiative.
