The Office of Global Citizenship offers a range of support to faculty and staff. Whether you want to lead a program abroad, bring an international expert to campus, are advising international students, or need assistance with your immigration status or travel documents, we can help.

FACULTY LED PROGRAMS

Leading a Sewanee international experience will deepen and broaden faculty members' intellectual engagement with students. Our Office has developed processes and resources to help faculty plan and lead a successful program.

ACQUIRING & MAINTAINING STATUS

The University supports international faculty and staff in establishing and maintaining immigration status and employment authorization in the United States. We also assist with a variety of other international needs.

ADVISING INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

International students enhance the Sewanee community by bringing diverse cultures, backgrounds, and perspectives. As international population continues to grow, advisors must be aware of the needs of this demographic.

INTERNATIONAL SCHOLARS & VISITORS

Whether coming to give a lecture, teach a course, or participate in research, international scholars and visitors often require individualized support from the University. Our Office helps provide that support.

FACULTY RESEARCH ABROAD

Faculty wanting to conduct research abroad may meet with our Office to discuss travel documentation and international regulations. For funding, faculty researchers should contact Sewanee’s Sponsored Research Office.
