Seven Sees

Cross-Cultural Center for Connection, Communication, Collaboration, and Creation

Welcome to seven sees

Through learning English as a Foreign Language as well as a Second Language, and subsequently, being exposed to a secondary culture or developing a secondary cultural identity, individuals will foster cross-cultural understanding. The goal of Seven Sees is to educate and promote global citizens that are risk-takers and peacemongers who are willing to create new ways of living in the global world. 

Seven Sees is a comprehensive, multifaceted, and multipurpose organization that promotes cross-cultural understanding and interpersonal relationship through education, cross-cultural exchange, development of programs, and research. 

Seven Sees advocates the development of a long lasting, mutually beneficial relationship with people in the local and global communities.
