Vanderbilt envisions our graduates as active global citizens who lead collaboratively to confront the world's difficult problems. Global learning is thus infused through our curricular and co-curricular offerings as well as our programmatic support services. Some of the offices and services that contribute to this effort are spotlighted below.
English Language Center (ELC) provides quality English-language instruction to individuals who have a first language other than English
The Global Education Office (GEO) administers study abroad and student exchange programs.
Office of Active Citizenship and Service (OACS) creates applied community service experiences that give every undergraduate an opportunity to engage to question, and to create change locally and globally.
International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) provides advice, counseling, and advocacy regarding immigration, cross-cultural, and personal matters
Vanderbilt Incident Response for Travel (VIRT) provides safety-related guidance and assistance for members of the Vanderbilt University community who are traveling away from campus on VU-related travel.
