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.

The Office of Global Engagement hopes to assist you in building bridges to the people and institutions you seek by accompanying you along the numerous pathways to BC’s partners worldwide.

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.
