The Center for Global Programs and Services (CGPS) brings together key enterprises to support the University's global initiative and campus internationalization efforts. As founders of the nation's first study abroad program, we inspire and facilitate the pursuit of global understanding by developing inclusive programs of study, opportunities for experiential learning and strategic partnerships. We welcome students and scholars from around the globe and foster their success through advising and cross-cultural engagement. Building upon Delaware’s history as a leader in international education, CGPS is proud to continue our legacy of innovation in the 21st century and beyond.

Thank you to the entire Blue Hen community for supporting the UD programs or causes you care about the most on Giving Tuesday!
Even though Tuesday has passed, it's not too late to support global programming and services. Read on below for the different ways you can support CGPS.
You can start by checking out CGPS on HenFunder, UD’s crowdfunding platform. Our inaugural HenFunder project seeks support to continue and enhance International Coffee Hour, our special and successful engagement event. Your gift of any amount makes a difference in the lives of UD’s international community members.
Your support will also advance Delaware First: The Campaign for the University of Delaware, which fuels growth, innovation and discovery at UD and beyond.
Thank you for supporting UD students today and always!
