Welcome to Clemson University’s Office of Global Engagement. Clemson University, its faculty, staff and students comprise a globally engaged community working with partners around the world and hosting international students, researchers and collaborators here in our classrooms, labs and research facilities. The Office of Global Engagement supports these activities and overall campus internationalization through the provision of operational and administrative support. Our three constituent offices are Global Partnerships & Initiatives, International Services and Study Abroad. We work with faculty members and departments to develop study abroad programs and to establish partnerships with overseas institutions and organizations, to provide visa and immigration services to the many international students and visitors on our campuses and to enhance overall campus internationalization.

Mission & Goals

The mission of the Office of Global Engagement is to coordinate and articulate global initiatives, programs and services that help prepare students for careers in the new economy, increase the university’s competitiveness in the international research arena, and challenge students to think deeply about current issues within a global context.

Through key global partnerships and other initiatives, our goals are to:

  • Continue steadily increasing the number of students involved in international study, internships, service learning, and research.
  • Recruit and retain promising students and faculty from around the United States and the world to study and teach at Clemson.
  • Ensure the development of an internationally competitive and globally aware work force.
  • Promote diversity and global awareness.
  • Support international research and economic development.

We welcome your comments, suggestions and support as we work to carry out our mission and meet these goals along with the entire Clemson campus community. Please contact us if you have comments or suggestions or if we can be of service.
