Formal World View partnerships help more than 85 school, district and community college partners across North Carolina globalize their curricula and campuses and prepare globally competent students.

We are ready to help you do the same.

Partners pay no membership fee. Rather, they commit to making global learning a priority for their educators and students. World View provides connections to valuable global resources, tools and networks.

Community College Global Distinction Program

Community College partners may step up to become participants in North Carolina Global Distinction, a collaborative effort of the state’s community colleges and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill that help colleges globalize their curricula and campuses and offer students a unique global education credential.

  • Infuse a global perspective into courses and curriculum.
  • Conduct curriculum planning sessions while attending World View programs.
