Global Initiative Program (GIP)

Thank you for your interest in the Global Initiative Program. This program is for groups of international students who are interested in improving their English and cultural competence skills through immersive experiences. What you'll get:


Cultural excursions around New York City, New Jersey, or even to Washington D.C.


ESL classes: Improve your English ability with intensive language courses designed to improve speaking, listening, reading, and writing ability.


Optional workplace experience: gain a competitive edge by shadowing local professionals and building working relationships.


No matter what field students enter post-graduation, this valuable experience at Bloomfield College not only helps to improve language skills, but provides a foundation for a global career. The ITPS office offers continual support for all students' academic and personal needs throughout their time at Bloomfield, including orientation, transportation, and advising. It is through a combination of intensive English courses, community engagement, and optional workplace experience that students are immersed within American life.


Workplace availability varies. Guaranteed placement available for students and groups studying nursing or education. Please contact Dr. David Kang for more information on how to participate.
