From the Executive Director Internationalizing VCU takes many forms. Whether it’s an academic unit wishing to develop a new, innovative program that supports VCU’s global priorities, a faculty member looking to enhance their research and teaching capacity through an expanded global network or a student who wants to study abroad or learn about the world from international students here on campus, the Global Education Office can help! We hope you enjoy this inaugural issue of Global Connections, and the stories of how VCU is connecting our students, faculty and staff to the world. In an increasingly globalized society, our mission is to prepare the next generation of leaders to navigate within and between global communities at home and abroad. We hope the stories told here will inspire you to get involved with the global mission of VCU. Regardless of how you choose to do so, we welcome your participation in GEO’s mission to increase the global impact of VCU’s research, teaching and service and to expand our role on the world’s stage.
