The mission of the Office of Global Studies (VPA Global) is to provide outstanding educational opportunities to all of our students through classes, partnerships, and alliances. Our goal is to inspire students to embark on a lifelong quest for knowledge, while encouraging creativity and critical thinking.
To further this goal, we provide our students with ample opportunities to expand their horizons, both geographically and intellectually. VPA Global, along with Syracuse University Abroad, offers a range of programs designed to broaden our students’ global perspectives and introduce them to incomparable learning experiences throughout the world. Students who are committed and have a desire to learn will experience tremendous rewards, both personally and in preparation for professional careers. We welcome our international students to SU with the same enthusiasm as we welcome our on-campus students, and we are confident that all of our students will benefit from our global offerings.
