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; and
  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.
