Mission Statement

Global Education supports UC San Diego’s mission of providing transformative experiences in a globally-connected world by bridging educational opportunities with the vast global research network of our campus.

Description

About the program

The Global Education's English-in-Action (EIA) conversation program matches international students, scholars and spouses with volunteer conversation leaders to help our international visitors with conversational English language skills, simultaneously helping them to acquire a better understanding of American culture and to acclimate more quickly to their new environment. Our volunteers are community members, faculty, staff, and students.

Conversation partners usually meet for 1.5 to 2 hours per week at a time and location that is convenient for both.

The EIA program is a rewarding learning experience for the international guest and volunteer, as they both gain considerable cultural insight and a deeper understanding and appreciation for diversity.
