The Center for Global Initiatives (CGI) coordinates Wesleyan’s globally-themed curricular and extracurricular programs by bringing together the College’s large international student population, globally-minded faculty and academic resources, long-standing connections to the wider world, and the rich resources of the Georgia community.
At the center of the CGI’s efforts is the Confucius Institute at Wesleyan College (CIWC). CWIC celebrates the longstanding relationship between Wesleyan and China, especially with the legendary Soong sisters. The CIWC’s multifold mission is to offer Chinese language instruction; promote Chinese Culture; foster intercultural exchange with China among students, educators, and community; and celebrate the lives of women through education and social change.
In addition CIWC, the CGI supports the Asian studies minor, which includes courses on Chinese culture taught by visiting scholars from Guangzhou University, Wesleyan’s partner institution in China. The Center also works closely with the College’s modern language and study abroad programs to enrich the campus community and provide students with meaningful educational experiences abroad.
The CGI also works with student organizations such as the College’s award-winning Model UN Club and AXIS, the Association for eXemplary International Students. Through participation in the Model UN Club students from diverse majors gain deeper understanding of the history, culture, and politics of nations and provides an opportunity to practice their leadership, speaking, and writing skills. As one of the most visible student organizations on campus, AXIS sponsors year-long programming that helps Wesleyan students take advantage of the cultural richness international students bring to campus.
