Their Roots: The Center for Global Education and Experience (CGEE) is affiliated with Augsburg College, a private liberal arts and sciences college located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It was founded in response to a call by the Lutheran Church for programs that raise awareness of international issues. In addition to its office in Minneapolis, CGEE maintains study centers in Nicaragua, Mexico, and Namibia. CGEE has developed community partnerships in these locations with a wide range of individuals and organizations to serve as community leaders.
Their Quest: Augsburg's Center for Global Education and Experience provides cross-cultural educational opportunities to foster critical analysis of local and global conditions. The goal is for personal and systemic changes to take place leading to a more just and sustainable world.
