Office of International Affairs

The Office of International Affairs (OIA) reimagines global learning at home and abroad, helps take on global grand challenges, invests in global communities and people, and advances the global common good through public partnerships. OIA achieves this by elevating the international character of the university through:

  • facilitating international partnerships, events and opportunities for our network;
  • championing all Maryland Global teams and partners in their endeavors for interdisciplinary research and global learning for all;
  • promoting safety and security during international study or work travel; and
  • communicating the work of the Maryland Global teams and partners.

The Office of International Affairs oversees the Maryland Global hub which helps deepen our university's commitment to advance the global common good through learning, research and partnerships. The work of Maryland Global is done in collaboration with Education Abroad (EA), Global Learning Initiatives (GLI), and International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS).
