Dear WVU faculty and students,

Welcome to the Office of International Programs, the branch of the Provost’s office charged with advancing the academic missions of One Global WVU in accordance with Goal Four of the university’s 2020 Strategic Plan. We are here to assist with a wide array of globally focused academic projects both on campus and abroad. Those include curriculum development, faculty and student mobility, exchange programs, study abroad, Fulbright and other grant opportunities, as well as visits from international colleagues. We are also home to the Council of International Programs, which hosts mid-career professionals in work-related training projects at WVU and in the Morgantown community.

The staff of International Programs is prepared to work with you on teaching, research, and service activities that integrate global citizenry and understanding into the fabric of our academic enterprise. Please let us know whenever you have a project that reaches out to the world beyond our borders.
