The Institute for Global Engagement (IGE) promotes a globally engaged university through collaborations and partnerships that connect the classroom to the world.

As a portal for globally-focused experiential learning and community engagement, it advances the University of Washington's imperative to be boundless, and adds momentum to UW Tacoma's strategic goal to advance global learning.

Solutions to our most compelling challenges are produced through diverse, collaborative, and cross-disciplinary teams. Through dynamic community engagement, the IGE opens up UW Tacoma honors classrooms to a world of collaborative innovation.

The IGE's Student Engagement Program, developed with the input of its high profile Community Advisory Board and supported by its vast network of local and global partners, offers honors students globally-focused opportunities for critical Experiential Learning Certification. Through the generosity of its partners, the IGE extends funded global learning opportunities to non-Honors students as well.
