Our Vision for the Future

For 30 years, Accent has been a trusted ally to our partners. Late last year, we decided it was time to reconsider Accent’s name and visual identity to reflect that mission.

It was an overdue project and one that we took on with enthusiasm, with the goal to more completely represent the impactful and strategic work that we are doing with our partners, and our vision for the future.

How the world has changed in just six months! And yet, it hasn’t. In international education, our work has always assumed a complex world, recognized the importance of scholarship, valued multiple viewpoints, and built itself upon thoughtful understanding of identities, histories, and cultures. On your campuses and in Accent Study Centers, these assumptions guide student learning and advance global thinking. Never have they been more important.

We are Accent Global Learning. Since 1991, we have been a behind-the-scenes force working with colleges, universities, and university systems to achieve their missions more effectively and economically through the thoughtful, strategic use of global education. Our partnerships build upon a deep understanding of institutional objectives, and the university-branded programs we develop together seek to engage your students, faculty, and leadership in global learning through international education.

I welcome you to explore our new website. You will find a new look, but we are confident that you will recognize the same values, relationships, and care that have characterized our work from the beginning.

We look forward to meeting with many of you in the coming months to discuss our partnership and explore ways in which Accent can support your office and help your institution achieve its global learning goals.
