Global Experiences

No matter what stage in life, international experiences change you.  Canisius’ Institute for Global Engagement (IGE) is in the business of change because it develops, hosts and delivers international programs, trips and experiences.

Institute for Global Engagement (IGE)

What makes IGE absolutely unique is that experiences are developed and led by educators. These professionals have years of study and understand the vast seamless of history, culture and spirituality in the destinations that they visit.

We are not a travel agency.  We are a global classroom.

A yearly roster of trips are planned but experiences can be customized for:

  • organizations, associations and religious groups;
  • companies or corporations;
  • retiree associations or individual social groups; and,
  • youth groups.

Unique spiritual and cultural trips also exist and have been enjoyed by lifelong learners and students annually to:

  • Kilimanjaro/Tanzania;
  • Argentina;
  • Philippines; and,
  • India

If any of these global experiences interest you or if you dream of something not found here, please contact Tim Wadkins at or 716-888-2824..

The world is still your oyster.
