Gateway to the World
International Affairs is the gateway between global partners and the NC State community, ensuring that partners match NC State’s strengths and mission. We develop linkages that support interdisciplinary programs while fostering meaningful and mutually beneficial activities for students, faculty and staff.
Focusing on key global strategic partners allows NC State to facilitate multi-disciplinary collaboration and exchange opportunities to support meaningful interaction among students and faculty from both sides. Strategic partners provide the necessary infrastructure (staffing, administrative, teaching and research space) that enable faculty, staff and students to focus on instruction, research and engagement.
International Affairs serves as the liaison with international offices at partner universities to expand study abroad opportunities, recruit international students, integrate international experience into academic programs and develop new global academic curricula.
