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.”

The BC Global Report recommends concrete strategies and initiatives to achieve these goals.
