Discover the world • Discover your neighbor • Discover yourself

West Valley College's Global Citizenship Center opened its doors in the Campus Center on Wednesday 6 February 2007. Back then it was called the Center for Global Education. Today, the mission and vision remain fundamentally the same.


  1. Promote awareness by functioning as a resource where students, faculty, staff, administrators and surrounding community find information and participate in diverse multicultural activities.
  2. Support the processes by which students learn about interdependence in our world and prepare for successful integration into varied societies.
  3. Help to implement the WVC Student Equity Plan revised in spring 2015-2016 aimed to improve student retention, persistence and success.


  1. The GCC works to actively engage the WVC community in understanding global issues.
