Global Programming

Welcome to the Global Programming website of Kansas City Kansas Community College!

From Vice President Fabiola Riobe


I am thrilled to extend my warmest greetings as the inaugural Vice President for Educational Innovation and Global Programming at KCKCC. Our institution takes immense pride in fostering an environment that values diversity, cultural exchange, and global competency. As we navigate a rapidly evolving world, it is crucial to recognize the significance of preparing our students for success in an interconnected and dynamic workforce.

Global competency, the ability to navigate and thrive in a globalized society, has become an essential skill in today's job market. As industries transcend borders and collaboration becomes increasingly international, possessing a global perspective is no longer an advantage but a necessity. At KCKCC, we are committed to equipping our students with the knowledge, skills, and experiences that will enable them to excel in this global landscape.

Our dedication to international education is rooted in the understanding that embracing different cultures, viewpoints, and traditions enriches our community both academically and socially. By celebrating diversity, we create an inclusive environment where creativity and innovation flourish. Our students gain a broader perspective on the world, fostering empathy, adaptability, and the ability to work seamlessly with individuals from various backgrounds.

By engaging with international education, KCKCC and our community reap numerous benefits. We contribute to a more culturally aware workforce that can effectively collaborate with partners from around the globe. We attract talents from diverse regions, enhancing the vibrancy of our campus and the broader Kansas City area. Moreover, supporting international education demonstrates our commitment to lifelong learning and positions us as leaders in preparing students for the demands of the future.

I invite you to explore our Global Programming offerings, which encompass a range of initiatives designed to nurture global competency. From study abroad opportunities and cultural exchange programs to internationally focused courses and seminars, we provide a comprehensive platform for students to broaden their horizons. By participating in these activities, you become part of a movement that not only shapes individual careers but also contributes to the economic and cultural growth of our community.

Thank you for joining us on this exciting journey of educational innovation and global engagement. Let us come together to celebrate the value of international education, celebrate the richness of diversity, and support the development of a workforce that is ready to conquer the challenges and opportunities of our interconnected world.

Here's to a future of global success!
