Virtual Engagement Opportunities with THE steven's initiative

The Edmonds College’s Global Engagement office is working  with the Steven's Initiative in order to provide virtual engagement opportunities to the students of our institution. Due to COVID-19, the lack of study abroad opportunities is evident. We want the students to experience what Global Competence is through these virtual opportunities. That’s why we are thrilled to present two options so you can implement them in your classroom.


If you require further assitance, don't hesitate to contact Caroline Zeiher.

The Connect Program—Soliya’s flagship virtual exchange initiative—is an online cross-cultural education program integrated into curriculum that provides young adults with a unique opportunity to:

  • Establish a deeper understanding for the perspectives of others around the world on important socio-political issues.

  • Develop 21st Century skills such as critical thinking, cross-cultural communication, and media literacy.
