About Special Programs for Global Engagement
The Office of International Initiatives Special Programs for Global Engagement offers a range of programs for students, scholars, staff, and faculty that focus on cultural immersion, English proficiency, and field specific learning.
Faculty and scholars can engage with OII through programs such as the Faculty Mentoring. Cohort Training is available for faculty, staff, graduate students, and other special groups. The faculty programs provide opportunities for participants to engage in academic activities including: research, teaching in an U.S. classroom, class observations, syllabi development and enhancement, course evaluation, lab training, and language enhancement.
Short-term programming for international students aims to immerse participants in U.S. culture and enable them to experience U.S higher education. Georgia State Students are also encouraged to take part in classes, workshops, and excursions with their international peers to gain global competency skills through cross-cultural learning.
OII works in close collaboration with on campus and community partners to ensure students, faculty, and scholars can achieve their goals through strategic programming.
