Allegheny Gateway to Communities, Cultures, and Careers

The Allegheny Gateway provides opportunities for students to study, live and work abroad; encounter diverse peoples and viewpoints; get involved in defining and addressing real-world problems and challenges; engage in collaborative projects with other students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community partners; and articulate how their Allegheny experiences have prepared them for careers and graduate/professional studies after they leave college. The Gateway also provides a means for faculty, students, staff and community partners to put classroom learning into practice by tackling complex problems facing society. Gateway programs foster intellectual enrichment, cross cultural and global engagement, civic and social responsibility, ethical development, career exploration and personal growth. Through collaborative work and shared goals, the offices within the Gateway offer students an integrated and interdisciplinary approach to experiential learning.
