Summer 2021 Virtual International Programs
SUNY has made the difficult decision to cancel all in-person Summer 2021 Study Abroad programs due to uncertainties surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, but that doesn’t mean students can’t receive a global education.
Despite the ongoing challenges, the Center for Global Education & Engagement (CGEE) believes in the importance of international experiences. To that end, in Fall 2020, the CGEE developed virtual programs available to Brockport students during Winter 2020/2021 and Spring 2021 and will continue to offer these programs for Summer 2021. These programs 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.

Global Citizenship Virtual Exchange Programs: Summer 2021
In these Global Citizenship Virtual Exchange Programs, students will contribute to global sustainability by completing a project in small groups, in partnership with community-based and nonprofit organizations around the world. Students will gain skills in intercultural communications and collaboration by completing a project for one of these partner organizations through the framework of the United Nations Sustainability Goals. Partner organizations around the world will work with groups of students to develop these stories and receive use of the final products.
