Bridging Cultures and Preparing Students for Multicultural Success

Global Partners in Education (GPE) is an East Carolina University led membership organization of Higher Education Institutions that are committed to providing their students opportunities for meaningful and impactful international education experiences through Global Virtual Exchange (GVE). Our goal is to prepare our students to succeed in an increasingly interconnected world by providing greater access to experiences that help them improve the intercultural communication and collaboration skills necessary to effectively navigate culturally diverse environments.

About GPE

Our programming helps students better understand both themselves and their place in the world as well as how to understand, respect and effectively collaborate with individuals from diverse cultures. Through real time interactions with partner students from multiple countries, students develop intercultural communication skills, learn to value others’ perspectives and acquire strategies for effectively working together to complete projects.
