​OGR is a program at NECC that unites the college through a shared investigation of a region’s peoples, nations, religions, and cultures across curricular and co-curricular activities to promote inclusivity, global awareness, and intercultural knowledge.​

The Caribbean

The Wider Caribbean Region includes 35 states and territories that border two interconnected watersheds: the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea. It includes continental countries, insular nations, and dependent territories. On the eastern side of the region's perimeter is the Insular Caribbean: islands of the Greater and Lesser Antilles and the chain of islands in the Bahamas to the north.
