About our unique Summit logo:
Our logo really shows and represents everything that Summit Global Education stands for: It goes everywhere, it mingles with the city, it towers above everything but partly hides behind churches and monuments. It crosses rivers and reflects in the waters. The ups and downs of it’s form represents the journey that our students go through in a deeply immersive cultural experience.
You arrive in a foreign place, everything is new and interesting, you are in a high, close to the clouds. But then you start missing the foods you are familiar with, the ease of communication, the ways of your people, and you start to go down…but then you learn to inquire, to understand, and to appreciate other perspectives, and back up you go.
All of those experiences are gently overseen and protected by a team of incredibly internationally minded professors and Summit staff who love everything diverse. And after these experiences, how can you come back to walk on the plains again, when climbing on Summits and striding on valleys is so much more enriching?
Learning to appreciate the particularities and idiosyncrasies of the different people and cultures is the framework of future compassionate and tolerant leaders, that will change this world to a better place. This is our passion. Come join us!
