Center for Diversity and Global Engagement

The Center for Diversity and Global Engagement (CDGE) is a nexus of programs and offices coordinated to encourage and foster development of intercultural competency among all campus community members. Merging student life and curricular development with programming and outreach, the Center reflects our social, cultural, and political heterogeneity. Liberal arts education demands a global perspective, an understanding of the local situated in a broader world context.

The CDGE aims to foster such perspectives across a range of fields on campus and beyond.

2015 MLK, JR. Day Celebration

Join us on Monday, January 19, to commemorate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. For the first time, Wooster has canceled regularly scheduled classes and will throughout the day hold performances and workshops devoted to peaceful conflict resolution; the history of race relations locally, nationally, and globally; the role of the liberal arts in advancing social justice; and ​service to others. The Center for Diversity and Global Engagement is proud to work in concert with the Provost’s Office and representatives from the Wooster City Schools (WCS) on this important project, which is a true collaboration of faculty, staff, and students from both institutions. We hope it becomes a long-standing tradition. Related events are scheduled for the weeks of January 12 and January 19. Full schedule of events.
