  2. To support faculty logistically in their international research, teaching, and curricular development;
  3. To advise and assist students, faculty and visitors from abroad in their integration into and involvement with the university and the local community; and
  4. To promote the ideals of global citizenship, intercultural appreciation, and mutual understanding in a rapidly changing world.
