About INGOS at RIC

The INGOS program, created with the help of a US Department of Education Grant, has several objectives:

  1. to expose students to career choices and graduate school opportunities in internationally-oriented fields;
  2. to provide state-of-the-art learning facilities for students to connect with INGOs in southern New England and related business and heritage language communities; to promote international travel;
  3. to provide students with experiential learning opportunities;
  4. to inform immigrant and heritage language students of higher educational opportunities and to help them gain in-depth knowledge of their languages and culture;
  5. to deliver an integrated modern languages/area studies curriculum.

INGOS gratefully acknowledges support from the US Department of Education.
