The International Center at the University of Florida is designed “to enhance the educational experience and environment of UF’s students, faculty, and staff by promoting a global perspective.” Serving some 50,000 students from around the nation and the world, the International Center aims to promote and extend a global perspective. In response to a rapidly changing world marked by globalization, the University of Florida established the International Center in 1991 to assist faculty, staff, administrators, and students in enhancing and extending international initiatives by supplying a variety of services. Included among is support for an International Speakers Series, Internationalizing the Curriculum Awards, Study Abroad Services, International Student Services, International Program Development, Faculty and Scholar Services, and office dedicated to facilitating international agreements between institutions.
