Office of Global Engagement
Diversity is one of our core values at Wilkes.
Through a commitment to embracing our differences, we create a more vibrant, inclusive learning community.
The Office of Global Engagement celebrates the experiences and identities that make us unique. By supporting underrepresented members of our campus, we create opportunities for all of us to grow and thrive.
Our doors are open to all. We offer practical assistance, friendly guidance and a supportive space. We also collaborate with the Multicultural Student Coalition to plan and present multicultural programs, projects and events for the Wilkes University community.
- Students from underrepresented groups based on race, sexual orientation, gender, age or culture
- International students, faculty and staff, offering assistance with visa paperwork as well as academic, cultural and social orientation
- Panamanian students, teachers, dignitaries and university guests
- Those learning English
- All students seeking to better relate to those different from themselves and who need support
Taking a Stand
The killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Rayshard Brooks and Ahmaud Arbery rocked the nation and lead to honest conversations about how the nation can resolve racial divide. At Wilkes, it led to a semester of advocacy, peace and unity.
The center helped me completely reinvent myself. It has been an experience I could not receive anywhere else. The growth in my personal and professional networks are all thanks to the office.Cindy Peralta Nin ’21 | Criminology Major, Global Coffee Hour Coordinator
