The purpose of the International Council (IC) is to expand the international perspectives and cross-cultural competence of the Corps of Cadets through education about foreign culture as well as networking and support programs. We provide opportunities for cadets to meet with international counterparts and learn about their cultures.
These opportunities prepare CGA cadets for effective participation in the dynamic global society, broaden their awareness about international events, and establish international networks that they can rely on in the future.
Additionally, we host foreign military delegations throughout the year. Through these partnerships, we forge new relationships with international sea services and expand the Academy’s global recognition. Furthermore, these partnerships with international sea services inspire them to send their top qualified citizens to our Academy as international cadets.
Today, we hold fast with this tradition and at the same time expand our support service for all other within the corps. We believe that these support programs make our Academy a better place to live for all cadets, both international and American.
