Broward College's Greene International Education Institute is a leader in international education. In addition to enhancing student diversity at Broward College (BC) through international student recruitment initiatives, the College provides students who live outside of the United States opportunities to live and study at American colleges and universities through its international education partnering network. This network has been critical in Broward's efforts to offer both US and international students greater access to US universities and educational institutes abroad.

Since 2006 Broward College has organized more than 20 regional and world conferences to serve as a forum for partners to share best practices and ideas. The BC World Conference offers a platform for BC to strengthen partnerships with its international partners and presents all participants the opportunity to forge new relationships. BC World Conferences seek to achieve the following goals:

  1. To provide up-to-date information about changes at the College and our programs, policies, and procedures needed to operate a BC International Center with a special focus on SACSCOC compliance issues
  2. To share best practices in classroom management and innovative teaching strategies
  3. To cultivate a culture of community among the international partners as well as linking them to the College
  4. To enable US Universities to attend and present their institutions to Conference delegates for the purpose of providing students in international centers a transfer path after earning their Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree

Virtual BC World Conference 2021

Broward College's Greene International Education Institute is proud to announce that we will be hosting the 2021 BC World Conference from May 10 - 14, 2021 virtually to reconnect with existing partners, colleagues, and friends and to expand our network by forging new relationships. Despite the ongoing global pandemic and the challenges it has and continues to present, the Greene Institute firmly believes that "Building Better and Stronger Connections" through a forum for the exchange of ideas and best practices offers the possibility of assuaging the weight of navigating this uncharted landscape.

The Conference program is being finalized and sessions will commence on May 10, 2020. We appreciate the needs of our partners and the challenges presented by the various time zones involved, therefore it is likely that on some days, the sessions will start in the morning or evening US Eastern Standard Time.
