International Engagement

In fulfilment of Howard University’s mission to produce leaders for America and the global community, the Provost’s Office supports a range of programs and international affairs activities. These include traditional study abroad opportunities, research projects, training and experiential programs, services for international students, and career training for foreign service. The Office of the Provost is engaged with every school, college, academic and administrative unit that facilitates and/or sponsors study abroad, experiential learning, and other extra-/co-curricular activities. This office is instrumental in the planning, facilitation and oversight of this type of programming, especially in instances where these activities are open to all students from across the university.

Study Abroad

Studying abroad can be a life-defining experience that expands one’s social and cultural outlook.
