DePaul’s Global Enhancement Program (GEP) creates the necessary infrastructure and support services to allow cohorts of students from international partner institutions to come to DePaul for a short period of time—from a few weeks or a quarter to a whole year—as tuition paying, non-degree seeking students.
The mission behind GEP is to:
- Increase the diversity of our international student population.
- Contribute to the further internationalization of DePaul’s campuses.
- Offer opportunities for meaningful and transformative intercultural experiences to students who may never take advantage of study abroad programs.
- Increase faculty and staff exposure to international students.
