As we live in an ever-increasingly diverse society and globalized economy, it is imperative that CMU provides opportunities for our students to develop the skills and knowledge they need to thrive after they graduate. The Office of International Affairs contributes to this by providing centralized support for CMU's international initiatives. Specifically, we oversee study abroad programs, international student and scholar services, and campus internationalization. We work in tandem with campus partners to support international student recruitment, the English language program, cultural programming, international partnerships, and faculty mobility. Our aim is to facilitate meaningful intercultural experiences for all CMU students, and to engage the greater campus community and the town of Mount Pleasant in globally-focused experiences and dialogue.
