Our staff strive to provide and facilitate quality international educational opportunities at The George Washington University. As educators, we promote the academic, personal, professional, and intercultural development of students before, during, and after their study abroad experiences. We respond effectively to student needs, contribute to campus internationalization, and foster cultural understanding and self-awareness among the student body.

Students can meet with our staff through express advising, office hours, individual appointments or at one of our events.
