Center for Global Programs & Services

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.
