About CIE

Mission

The Center for International Education fosters innovative approaches to understanding the challenges of living and working in our increasingly interconnected, technologically-driven world.

To this end, the Center engages in teaching, research and outreach through its international, global, and area studies programs, its academic and public lectures and conferences, and by connecting US and international students and scholars with on-campus and overseas research and study opportunities.

As a comprehensive office, the Center offers a range of services to the entire university. These include teaching and research opportunities for students, faculty, and staff, encompassing study abroad, international student admissions, public programming, and scholarly conferences, all of which endeavor to get us closer to the ideal of having an interculturally-competent and multilingual citizenry, able to thrive in today's world.
