Mission Statement

In support of the University-wide international mission, the Office of International Education and Global Initiatives (IEGI) works with Binghamton faculty and staff for the development of a broad array of international education programs to prepare students for global leadership and citizenship. Through collaboration with international partners, IEGI builds strong exchange and study-abroad programs. In addition, IEGI seeks to integrate the study-abroad experience with international education opportunities on campus by building connections to all areas of the curriculum. A priority is to send as many Binghamton students abroad as possible on well-managed, quality programs. By coordinating arrangements for students who come from abroad on exchange and contractual programs, we seek to enrich the international experience of all students here on the Binghamton campus. IEGI's principal areas of responsibility are study-abroad advising, study-abroad and exchange program management, coordination of dual-diploma programs with Turkish and other universities, arrangements for incoming exchange and visiting international students, assistance with the preparation of international agreements, and, as requested, support for international projects.
