Global Engagement: Connecting Rochester and the World
Learn, discover, heal, create—
And make the world Ever Better
Since its founding, the University of Rochester has transformed the city, the region, the nation, and the world.
The University is an increasingly global institution. We draw students from all over the world, compete internationally for the most talented faculty, and establish international research partnerships.
The needs of a global society are becoming more complex, and the demands on a research university such as Rochester are increasingly urgent. With the aid of the Office of Global Engagement, Rochester can meet those demands.
Office of Global Engagement launches new website
The revamped site features news, resources, facts, and staff contact information. The office helps the University’s departments, schools, and individuals to engage internationally, as well as spread Rochester’s mission through global programs and partnerships.

International Engagement: A Rochester Hallmark
Our undergraduate students are problem solvers, critical thinkers, activists, and innovators—poised to become global citizens.
