Global Citizenship Center


"Discover the world. Discover your neighbor. Discover yourself."

Global Citizenship Banner

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.


Promote awareness by functioning as a resource where students, faculty, staff, administrators and the surrounding community find information and participate in diverse multicultural activities.

Support the processes by which students learn about interdependence in our world and prepare for successful integration into varied societies.

Help to implement the Student Equity Plan and to improve retention, persistence and success.

Facilitate needed conversations about diversity and equity within the United States. 


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