Maritz Global Institute

Maritz logo

St. Louis Community College (STLCC) and Maritz are partners in mainstreaming global education on all four STLCC campuses and in the community.

Maritz a St. Louis-based company, is a leader in designing and delivering solutions that help people and businesses be and perform their best. The company offers meetings and events, customer experience technology, employee recognition, incentives and rewards, and customer loyalty programs that helps Fortune 500 clients increase sales, improve productivity, drive customer satisfaction, and deepen employee engagement. Maritz specialties are Sales Incentives and Performance Travel Programs, Employee Recognition Solutions, Business Meetings & Events, Customer Experience Research & Technology, Customer Loyalty Solutions, Rewards, and Fulfillment.

Over the past two academic years an implementation of the STLCC Global Institute and all of its components has taken place in partnership with Maritz. Through the Martiz sponsored Institute, STLCC has significantly expanded and mainstreamed its global programming on all campuses; established a new global curriculum requirement for all STLCC students; broadened the scope of subjects and significantly increased the global campus events; and supported study abroad opportunities for students, faculty, staff and the community. All these and other global activities fall within the four main components of the Institute: global curriculum, global journeys, global pathways and global campus.

STLCC's diverse programming has touched on subjects of great importance such as human trafficking. Maritz employees take active roles in the programming through volunteering, presentations, training, and serving on committees and advisory board.

STLCC's and Maritz's efforts are supported by other partners: the Bosnian Chamber of Commerce of St. Louis, World Affairs Council of St. Louis, Missouri Consortium for Global Education and Study Missouri Consortium, Missouri Botanical Garden, St. Louis Language Immersion Schools, Inner Asian and Uralic National Resource Center, and Washington University. The list keeps growing every year.

Goals for the upcoming academic year for the STLCC-Maritz partnership are to: provide training for faculty in the development of global curriculum; develop study abroad programs for student veterans, hospitality and tourism students, and other underrepresented student groups in the study abroad programs; expand the Foreign Language and English as a Second Language programs; and extend the reach of the Institute to a greater number of local and international companies through the College's Workforce Solutions Group.  Simultaneously, the College will continue to execute and expand the Institute's programming that is already in place.
