The Office of International Programs & Services (IPS) aims to create a global awareness on campus and within the community. IPS prepare students with the global knowledge, attitudes and skills that will enable them to function as citizens of the world. IPS 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 study abroad & exchange programming for students; offering professional development and service activities for faculty and staff; maintaining high-quality, federally compliant international student and scholar services; and hosting programs and events to promote international awareness and an appreciation of global cultures. This infusion of internationalized educational activities extends beyond the scope of the University to support global learning, business, and economic development in Southeast Georgia.
The Office of International Programs & Services aspires to raise the international profile of the institution and become a regional leader in the development, implementation, and execution of internationalization activities.
