In 2006, a $12.5 million grant from the education division of Lilly Endowment gave Goshen College the unique opportunity to establish the Center for Intercultural Teaching and Learning, now known as Center for Intercultural and International Education.
The Center works to understand how small liberal arts colleges can best serve the educational needs of rapidly increasing Latino immigrant populations. Goshen College intends to extend these insights to better enroll and retain other students of color.
Three main objectives are to:
- Create a transformed learning community on campus,
- Increase access to Goshen College for under-served students, and
- Do research into changing local demographics and their implications for higher education.
