New Virtual International Program Opportunities
The CGEE has developed two exciting virtual programs available during Winter 2021 and Spring 2021, which will allow students the chance to engage in meaningful, global opportunities and earn credit from the comfort and safety of home.
After careful consideration, SUNY has made the difficult decision to cancel all Winter 2020/2021 & Spring 2021 Study Abroad Programs due to uncertainties with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Despite the ongoing challenges, we at the Center for Global Education & Engagement believe wholeheartedly in the importance of international experiences. To that end, we have developed two exciting virtual programs available to Brockport students during Winter 2020/2021 and Spring 2021, which will allow students the chance to engage in meaningful, global opportunities and earn credit from the comfort and safety of home, all for a comparable cost to taking regular Brockport classes.
