At Shipley, we believe that global programs, education, and experiences provide opportunities for our students to grow as independent and more globally competent citizens. Our programs improve students’ cross-cultural skills, encourage risk-taking, and further language development. Students learn to value interculturality, seeing themselves as part of the whole world, and appreciating and understanding how other cultures and people broaden our perspectives. Students better understand their home culture(s) by experiencing different places and cultures from their own. Ultimately, students are more empathetic and better equipped to succeed in a highly interconnected world by having experienced Global Programs and Education at Shipley.
