About the Human Needs & Global Resources Program:


Human Needs & Global Resources (HNGR) is an academic certificate program that integrates multidisciplinary coursework, a six-month internship, and whole-person formation through experiential learning. Students live, work, worship, and serve with local communities worldwide, while accompanying host partner organizations that confront poverty, challenge inequity, transform conflict, pursue justice, and seek fullness of life. The program cultivates a life-orienting commitment to justice, intercultural humility, compassion, hospitality, environmental health, and peacemaking, as actively reflected in lifestyle and vocation.

Please note that before you begin the application process, you should schedule an appointment for a general information meeting with the HNGR Partnership and Placement Manager. Please call 630-752-5199 or e-mail hngr@wheaton.edu to schedule your appointment.
