Global Gateway Program provides ‘soft landing’ for international students

When the COVID-19 pandemic began, enrollment in the program was hit hard, but it is making a slow return. Dr. Cornell Menking, GGP’s director, said the program has begun to gain more students, with 223 in the program since spring 2019.
