The Institute for Interdisciplinary and Global Studies at Florissant Valley
The Institute for Interdisciplinary and Global Studies (IIGS) connects time tested programs from the Florissant Valley campus, such as the Global Path to Success Program, Italian Studies, Global Education, Service Learning, Study Abroad Programs, and the new Global Citizen Program. These come together under one leadership board to coordinate operations and activities thus providing a rich environment for enhancing student learning.
Student and community access to the activities and educational opportunities offered through these programs are enhanced under the umbrella of the Institute, a metaphorical house in which these programs reside. The Institute also creates a bridge between St. Louis Community College-Florissant Valley and other academic institutions in our city and region.
Further, the Institute facilitates regional and national summits, bringing together innovators and researchers to enhance the understanding of and to disseminate scholarship in interdisciplinary and global studies.
