We strive to achieve this mission by:

  • Coordinating and facilitating efforts on campus to transform individuals and connect the world through travel abroad;
  • Programming to raise global awareness on campus and in our community;
  • Cultivating a safe and supportive environment for learners and leaders from all parts of the world; and
  • Building sustainable partnerships that enhance the resource position of the university to achieve strategic global engagement.
