International Education and Global Initiatives

IEGI staff and student ambassadors provide advising to Binghamton University students who wish to study abroad. In addition to administering Binghamton University's education abroad programs, we support programs offered by other SUNY campuses and non-SUNY programs. IEGI currently offers more than 40 programs, and we are constantly working with departments and faculty on campus to develop new programs which will serve the evolving needs of Binghamton students.

We also work closely with International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) to support to incoming exchange students from our overseas academic partners. These visiting students come from varied locations, including the United Kingdom, South Korea, Morocco, and Germany. Binghamton University provides a welcoming environment for these students, ranging from academic advising to more general student support.
