The International Center at the University of Missouri facilitates all things international at the University of Missouri. We raise international awareness and foster dialogue on critical world issues.
The center works with faculty and staff from across campus to develop and maintain MU’s relationships with institutions around the world. We also facilitate on-campus i...nternationalization through curriculum and faculty development projects.
Study abroad coordinates, develops and administers quality programs that enable MU students to study outside the U.S. Each year well over 1,000 MU students choose to enhance their academic experience—gaining an appreciation and understanding of other nations and cultures—through study abroad.
Finally, we build international connections on our campus and in our community, offering a variety of opportunities to get involved with Missouri’s global campus.
