Broaden Your Perspective

Shuford Center for International Education

There are many co-curricular activities that enrich the Lenoir-Rhyne education. By participating in study abroad or interacting with international students on our campus, you will expand your knowledge and engage other cultures in ways that broaden your perspective.

Preparing You for the World

The Shuford Center for International Education initiates and supports events and programs that contribute to a global education and fosters intercultural skills building.  

We offer robust opportunities for our exchange students to integrate into life on campus and we encourage all LR students to explore how intercultural learning can support effective relationships across cultural difference in day to day interactions, in local communities and in the larger world.  We offer students the opportunity to live in a globally focused residential learning community called the Global Village and to serve as peer mentors to exchange students through our I-Pal program.  

Not only do we facilitate the study abroad process, but we offer students opportunities to maximize what you learn from your experience, inviting reflection that supports self-learning, discernment and a comfort level relating newly developed transferrable skills to future employers.

LR professors go above and beyond to help students. LR has provided me with opportunities to enrich my learning through study abroad trips, research groups, workshops, conventions and convocations.
