The Office of Global Initiatives directs the development and implementation of new educational and training partnership opportunities beyond the border of the United States. Created in 2013, the program follows the Technical College System of Georgia’s lead to expand the educational reach of technical colleges beyond Georgia.

Study abroad trips to England, Ireland, and Scotland are available through the office. In addition to for-credit opportunities, the office also hosts students studying from countries as varied as Scotland, Colombia, China, Libya, and Vietnam.
