Twenty years ago, Middlesex Community College (MCC) in Massachusetts decided to add a global focus to its programs. Since then, the college has garnered worldwide recognition for the range of international initiatives it has integrated into its curriculum across academic disciplines. Today, Middlesex offers unique opportunities for international study and professional development for its students, faculty and staff, as well as training programs for foreign businesses, intercultural training for local businesses and programs to help foreign countries modernize their education and economic infrastructures. With one campus situated in the traditional gateway immigrant city of Lowell, Massachusetts, and another in suburban Bedford, Massachusetts, Middlesex serves a diverse population that includes many Asian and Hispanic immigrants. It also hosts many international students on both campuses and supports community programs with an international focus.
