Boston College’s commitment to global engagement lies at the core of its educational mission. The Jesuit, Catholic liberal arts tradition, fostered through the links between Jesuit scholars across the world since the sixteenth century, is in its essence international.

Our path for the future is expressed in the university’s Strategic Plan: “Boston College commits itself to increasing its presence and impact through increased outreach to international students, recruitment of faculty with international backgrounds, and the development of programs that promote global cooperation.”

After twelve months of systematic work, the Boston College Global Engagement Committee— consisting of faculty, students, and administrators—completed the BC Global Report (below), which recommends a set of strategies and initiatives to increase the university's presence and impact in the global arena.
