The mission of the Northeast Global Education Center at Salem State is to help educators bring a global perspective to schools within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The center provides programs, projects, workshops, pre-service and in-service training, resources, and consultation to administrators, teachers, librarians, and counselors as a means of promoting competence in international issues, cross-cultural awareness and content strands of the preK to 12 curriculum.
As a member center of the Massachusetts Global Education Consortium, the Northeast Global Education Center at Salem State provides services to the northeast region of the Commonwealth.
Professional development programs, institutes, workshops, and seminar and lecture series
