The Center for International Education (CIE) has four general themes of emphasis: global ecology, international business, international education and foreign languages and culture.

Center for International Education

The Center for International Education (CIE) seeks to use its resources and programs to enhance and complement the college’s curricular and co-curricular programs, including academic programs in international studies, international business and language area studies, leadership studies and peace and justice.

To implement its general themes, the Center divides its operation into support of local and regional business entry into the global marketplace, community outreach, campus internationalization, and international academic programs at St. Norbert College.
