The Daegu Gyeongbuk English Village (DGEV) has been established via a partnership between the University of Colorado Colorado Springs and Yeungjin College located in Daegu, South Korea.  The purpose of the DGEV is to train students of all ages in the usage of the English language and cultivate a global learning environment for the 21st Century. Additionally we wish to establish an environment which provides English education of South Korean citizens in an experiential learning environment of western cultures.

(All, I am currently working on some program delivery shells that we’ll eventually be able to link to from here for the International Faculty Training Programs. In the interim our contact information will give those interested a way in which to get more information. A lot to do yet.) Any other programs that would make sense in listing at this point please forward on to me? At one point I would like to have a College section here dedicated to the programs from the the various UCCS colleges/schools which lists their international initiatives (eg., the COB, LAS exchange programs, CoEAS Balsells program, research, etc.) Our approach to this has always been what the OIA has done/is doing; however, it’s time we shine a spotlight on what the faculty are doing. Naturally, this information will need to be collected and paragraphs typed up with links where appropriate.
