The Office of International Affairs (OIA)
For us, the heartbeat of our work is elevating the international character of the university through facilitating international partnerships, events, and opportunities for our Terrapin network. Through a strategic approach, accounting for the diversity of our community, we champion all Maryland Global offices and campus partners in their endeavors to integrate global learning for all. Using multiple channels, we also communicate the work of our offices and constituents, reaching, growing, engaging and inspiring diverse and interested audiences.
