Internationalization is essential to attract and prepare motivated students, recruit world-class faculty, conduct breakthrough research, and successfully compete for public and private support. Students demand access to curricula and other opportunities to prepare them for the global marketplace, which in turn demands skilled workers with fluency in languages and comfort with cultures different from their own.

The University has led the way by providing high-quality study, research, and internship opportunities abroad, recruiting talented international students and scholars, and developing innovative activities that internationalize the curriculum and campus.
