About Global Engagement



Mission

The Office of Global Engagement aims to create a global awareness on campus and within the community. Global Engagement prepare students with the global knowledge, attitudes and skills that will enable them to function as citizens of the world. Global Engagement aims to infuse a global dimension throughout the University’s teaching, research, and service activities, and improve the breadth and depth of Georgia Southern’s global reach and engagement. These aspirations are achieved by managing international strategic partnerships; providing experiential learning with study abroad, study away & exchange programming for students; offering professional development and service activities for faculty and staff; and maintaining high-quality, federally compliant exchange and visiting student and scholar services. This infusion of internationalized educational activities extends beyond the scope of the University to support global learning, business, and economic development in Southeast Georgia.

Vision

The Office of Global Engagement aspires to raise the international profile of the institution and become a regional leader in the development, implementation, and execution of internationalization activities.


Our Team

The professional staff of the Office of Global Engagement thrive on challenges and strive to create an environment that supports the internationalization efforts of Georgia Southern University and the educational advancement of its students, faculty, staff, and the surrounding local community. By engaging in consistent professional training, Global Engagement staff stay up-to-date with the policies, procedures, regulations, and best practices necessary for facilitating student and faculty support in Experiential Learning (Study Abroad, Study Away, Exchange), Visiting and Exchange International Student & Scholar Services, and all other areas of responsibility.
