The vision for the re-imagined International Lab at the College of Charleston is to create a physical hub where students and faculty can engage in global-immersion-learning with native speakers without the financial burden or logistical complexities of travel. Support for the Lab is a collaborative project between philanthropy and the College.
The space will also serve as the physical arm of the newly-established Global Education Initiative, designed to function as both a classroom for use by faculty with larger groups of students, but also as a state-of-the-art lab space with interactive and collaborative pods for smaller group work. This resource is a critical piece to moving the College of Charleston forward into an era where global experiences are within reach for every student and faculty member. It will enhance language exposure and instruction at the College of Charleston, a change that relies heavily on collaboration, group learning, and interacting with native and non-native speakers alike.
The impact of this project will be institution-wide, as we anticipate the majority of students participating in global education utilizing this space at some point during their college tenure.
