Our students prepare to live, work, and make a difference in a global economy. From devising award-winning economic solutions, to readying foreign Olympians to become leaders within their professional sporting organizations, they prepare for working, exploring, and serving communities around the world. Gaining an understanding of complex, cross-cultural issues requires that students have experiences that broaden their view of the world as they know it.

Ready for the World, an international and diversity awareness initiative, is designed to propel our students forward in today’s society by supplying them with a worldview shaped by a culturally diverse campus and opportunities to explore the world. It internationalizes the course curriculum, increases global competency of faculty and staff and study abroad opportunities, and gives students the edge to tackle global, societal challenges in all academic disciplines.

This globally focused program is elevating our standards and is truly making our students "Ready for the World."
