Office of International Programs

Mission Statement



The Office of International Programs supports and enhances the University’s mission to serve “the higher education needs of a rapidly growing, international and multicultural population in the South Texas Region,” thus promoting international and multicultural awareness on campus and in the community through international programs such as student experiences abroad, faculty teaching abroad, academic exchanges and international events, presentations and conferences. The Office also facilitates and encourages campus-wide efforts to develop international programs in the areas of research, publications, continuing education, faculty development and community outreach. It supports international initiatives among student groups, faculty and agencies in the Texas-Mexico border community. In addition, the Office provides assistance in setting up linkages with universities in Mexico and other countries in the world, sponsoring multi-cultural and international research and forming affiliations between international groups and the community.
