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 2022

Broward College's Greene International Education Institute is proud to announce that we will be hosting the 2022 BC World Conference from May 16 – 19, 2022. The theme of the Conference will be “Overcoming Barriers to Accessing an American Dream Education”, an apt refrain for proponents of higher education as we continue to motivate our students to stay the course of their education journey.

We hoped to reconnect in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, but due to the uncertainty posed by the pandemic, the Conference will be delivered virtually on Zoom.

We hope to “see” you on Zoom to catch up, share best practices and learn from your experience this past year.  These sessions will be recorded and shared with our International Partners. To find out more, please contact Ms. Lisbeth Isaacs, Senior Director, Global Operations for International Education at lisaacs@broward.edu

Kindly note that these plans are tentative and are subject to change without notice.

We invite our local faculty & staff, international partners, and Educational institutions to register for our 2022 Virtual World Conference using the links below.
