Expanding International Knowledge & Understanding

International Education provides system-wide leadership for strategic planning, policy interpretation and coordination of international education initiatives. International Education assists Ƶ campuses with all aspects of campus internationalization, Study Abroad program development and international students and scholar services. The priorities and activities of International Education include:

  • Advocating for international education within the Ƶ system and at the Board of Regents
  • Collecting international education data and sharing recommendations for best practices across the Ƶ
  • Providing structure and support for Ƶ international collaborations
  • Providing information and assisting Ƶ schools with state and national funding grants for international initiatives and study abroad
  • Coordination of the System Council on International Education (SCIE), the Ƶ’s international advisory committee, as well as, the Study Abroad and International Student and Scholars sub-committees
  • Administering the Ƶ’s J-1 Exchange Visitor program consortium

We strive to ensure that all Ƶ faculty, staff, students and scholars are provided with opportunities to cultivate intercultural competency and perspectives by engaging with people, cultures and languages in order to foster global learning on each campus.
