The Minnock Institute for Global Engagement is comprised of three distinct areas.
The OSA works with the BSU community to support international experiences abroad that range from several weeks to a full academic year.
ISSS provides services and programs to international students and scholars. We assist with maintenance of immigration status, on and off-campus employment authorization, pre-arrival and re-entry information, and conduct various informational workshops
English Language Learning
English Language Learning (ELL) was created in September
2016 to provide and coordinate English language education and support for
speakers of other languages at BSU. ELL also works with community and regional
partners to provide English language support programming, such as a new
ESL-focused MTEL preparation course for paraeducators in the Brockton Public
Schools, and community outreach efforts, like the BSU/Bridgewater Community
Conversation Partner Program. ELL collaborates with Global Learning and ISSS to
develop English-language enrichment programming for short-term exchange
programs and special initiatives, such as the Mandela Washington Fellowship for
Young African Leaders.
