Introducing the Cultural Exchange Network (CENet)

The Global Training Initiative at North Carolina State University is proud to announce the launch of the Cultural Exchange Network, or CENet for short. CENet is your gateway to exploring all cultures through activities designed to build global competencies. The program connects NC State students to international students from the SKEMA Business School in France as well as students from GTI partner schools in Brazil, China, and Taiwan.

CENet was formerly the International Cultural Leadership Project, which was created in 2011 as a way to connect SKEMA Business School students to the NC State community. Participation quickly grew, as did the number of events offered by the GTI each semester. So, the ICLP transformed into the Cultural Exchange Network.

The goal of GTI’s Cultural Exchange Network is to foster cultural learning through academic, social and service learning activities. The network brings together students and the NC State community to integrate international students into campus life and expose NC State students to a world of cultures available here at home.

Members of the Cultural Exchange Network have access to at least 40 activities every semester, which are free to students. These high impact experiences contribute to the integration of international populations at NC State as well as provide individual global learning opportunities. CENet activities focus on cultural learning through academic, social and service situations.
