The Global Engagement Office coordinates a variety of international initiatives at USF Sarasota-Manatee to the benefit of all students and faculty.  Its mission is to lead the creation and implementation of strategic initiatives that will expand USFSM’s international reach.

The Global Engagement Office coordinates with USF World and provides support to faculty and students interested in studying abroad. In an effort to promote global culture at USFSM and globalize student success, the GEO coordinates campus-wide programs, coordinates an international certificate program and works with deans and faculty on creating new study abroad initiatives. The office also collaborates with USF World on establishing international agreements that promote increased international academic exchanges.

We invite you to browse our website and see the USFSM Global Engagement Brief (PDF).
