Education Abroad (EA)
EA provides students with credit-bearing and culturally-immersive study abroad programs that complement the curricula of university academic units, while also developing our students’ intercultural and solution-focused skills to help shape their journey to become effective citizens, professionals, and human beings.
Global Learning Initiatives (GLI)
Through this initiative, we guide academic units as they advance Global Learning for All and integrate global learning modalities into their curricula. Our expertise includes strategic planning, advising, workshopping, and design sprints. Reach out to us to learn more about how we can support you today!
International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS)
From pre-arrival to departure, we support international students and scholars with global mobility by obtaining and maintaining immigration status, and providing support for cultural adjustment and community integration.
The Office of International Affairs (OIA)
The heartbeat of our work is elevating the international character of the university. We do this through facilitating global learning and research collaborations with campus and international partners; championing all Maryland Global units and campus partners in their endeavors to integrate global learning; promoting safety and security during international study or work travel; and communicating the work of the Maryland Global teams and partners.
