"I learned things you wouldn't be able to learn in a classroom - the connection between culture, language,
history, the past and the modern world. Most of all, I learned about myself."
- Amber Yost '03, Wales
The Office of International Education (OIE) partners with students, faculty, staff and the broader community to create a vibrant campus environment in which international perspectives and multicultural understanding are actively integrated into curricular and co-curricular life. Using the institution's four pillars as a platform, the office provides campus members with opportunities to expand their international awareness, to explore their relationships to the world, and to become responsible global citizens. The means of accomplishing the office mission include:
- Working with faculty and administration to support their international efforts in and out of the classroom.
- Creating campus-wide co-curricular opportunities for cross-cultural interaction and learning.
- Establishing and maintaining linkages and partnerships with overseas institutions.
- Recruiting quality undergraduate and graduate international students.
- Providing individual advising, pre-departure orientation and re-entry assistance for study abroad participants.
