COIL Program with Czech University of Life Sciences Prague (CZU)

In spring 2022, NC State University, the Office of Global Engagement and the NC Japan Center engaged in a COIL program with Czech University of Life Sciences Prague (CZU).

COIL, or Collaborative Online International Learning, is a wonderful and effective way for students to engage with global cohorts, learning about other countries, lifestyles and perspectives, and strengthening their cultural competency.
