Access to international learning opportunities

Intercultural and international education is central to the university’s mission. Our goal is to help students understand the limits of their own experience, increase their critical capacity to understand other perspectives, and ultimately develop a personal commitment to the principle that all people, in all societies, are entitled to dignity, respect, and security.
