Mission Statement

GlobeThe primary mission of the SDSU Office of International Affairs (OIA) is to foster an environment in which the university's many constituents—administrators, faculty, staff, students, residents of the local community and the state of South Dakota—have varied opportunities to gain appreciation, knowledge and understanding of other cultures and global trends.

OIA is the comprehensive home for international students and scholars services, international undergraduate admissions, study abroad planning for faculty and students and community connections programs. All services and activities are intended to help enrich the experiences of international students and scholars on campus and to help expand global engagement for students, faculty and staff.
