The Center for International Education (CIE) helps prepare Northern Arizona University students to be globally competent upon graduation. We accomplish this goal through direct engagement with faculty and academic departments and by sponsoring a variety of programs and a range of services. For example we:


  • Work with faculty and academic units to infuse global perspectives in the academic programs of study they offer
  • Work to strengthen the academic infrastructure for international education
  • Support faculty development opportunities through international research and teaching
  • Develop and nurture strategic relationships with universities and organizations based overseas
  • Offer extensive support to Northern Arizona University students seeking education abroad experiences
  • Manage the recruitment and admission of international students
  • Provide services for our growing international student and visiting scholar population

In all that we do, our ultimate aim is for all NAU students to be recipients of a comprehensive global learning experience so that they can be well prepared to lead successful and productive lives as global citizens.
