Higher education is becoming increasingly important on Guam, sparking an ongoing effort to develop our institutions of higher learning. Island leaders view crafting Guam's future leaders as an important responsibility. Many students who opt to leave the for college return home to enter the workforce or pursue master's degrees at the University of Guam.
Founded in June 1952 as the Territorial College of Guam, UOG in the central village of Mangilao has since grown into an accredited four-year land-grant institution. Local and international students pursue degrees offered in more than 30 undergraduate programs and more than 10 masters degree programs. UOG is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.
The University of Guam partners with mainland universities in exchange programs and brings to the island a wealth of diversity. Bachelors degree programs include business, public administration, education, nursing, science, and the arts. UOG is especially known for its quality marine biology research and has gained recognition as administering the number-one ROTC program nationwide.
In addition to Guam Community College, our island is home to an amazing variety of community education groups. The Guam Visitors Bureau is proud to be a supporter of several of them. To name just a few:
-Traditions About Seafaring
This group passes on the Chamorro tradition of seafaring by teaching navigation and carving skills. TAFI has undertaken inspiring projects such as an inter-island sailing trip on a canoe built by a highly regarded Master Navigator who passed away in 2013.
-Guam International Film Festival
The only annual US film festival in the Western Pacific, founded to promote intercultural understanding. Held in September and featuring independent films.
-Guam Museum Foundation
Actively involved in bringing a major museum back to Guam after the previous facility was destroyed in World War II. Artifacts from the Spanish and ancient Chamorro periods on Guam are currently stored around the world, and in repositories on the island, awaiting the completion of this exciting project.
A peer-reviewed, online, wiki-style encyclopedia where anyone with an Internet connection, on Guam or in any corner of the world, can learn in-depth about Guam's culture, history, and politics.
