Success in today’s global society requires experience and leadership that drives education beyond traditional boundaries. At RIT we are committed to expanding opportunities for global education, international connections, work experience and cultural exchanges. RIT has many inter-connected offices, departments, groups, and individuals dedicated to international education and the mission of educating global citizens. These include cutting-edge academic programs, student services units, academic committees, student organizations, and engaged faculty, staff and students.
The RIT Office of International Education and Global Programs (OIE) is one of these offices. We are a team of faculty and staff who strive to support and advance the university in its international education initiatives. The office staff provides support to students, faculty and staff interested in an international experience, including study abroad, exchange programs, fellowships, and the RIT Global Campuses. OIE is led by Dr. James Myers, Associate Provost for International Education and Global Programs. The office works closely with the administration and faculty in all nine colleges to achieve RIT’s goal of internationalizing the campus through fostering culture knowledge and competencies, providing global experiential opportunities, expanding RIT’s education abroad and engaging in international research.
Our office and website serve as the portal to myriad global opportunities and programs offered at RIT. Go Global!
