INTERNATIONAL INITIATIVES

Lucia Harrison, Director

 

The International Initiatives Office is charged with promoting Southeastern's international programs and projects. These initiatives offer opportunities for students and faculty to participate in activities with students, universities, and other institutions abroad. They afford an international dimension to the academic, cultural, and professional growth of the university and the regional community that better prepares us to play constructive roles in today's global society.

 

Towards these ends, the International Initiatives Office collaborates with a number of administrative offices and academic departments to implement a variety of international programs. These include study abroad programs and academic and development programs in cooperation with international organizations and universities and agencies overseas.

 

Study Abroad Programs in Austria, China, Costa Rica, England, France, Germany, Honduras, Italy, and other countries offer academic credits in foreign languages, business, sociology, criminal justice, anthropology, biology, political science, music, history, nursing, communication, and other academic areas. More than $45,000 in scholarships for study abroad are awarded each academic year.
