The University of Southern California maintains eight international offices that work closely with academic partners in education and research, with partners in the corporate and NGO worlds, with government agencies and international organizations:
While the university’s international offices provide assistance to USC schools and administrative units in many ways, their principal activities focus on three areas:
- Global Recruiting. The offices support and enhance USC’s efforts to recruit ever more qualified undergraduate and graduate students by working closely with the Office of Admission and with academic units across the university.
- Global Partnerships. The offices work with all of USC’s schools to develop and expand joint research partnerships and programs involving USC and government agencies, private corporations and other institutions of higher education.
- Global Opportunities for Students. The offices support and seek opportunities for student exchanges, internships and service-based learning to provide an ever-increasing number of USC students with international study, living and working experience that will equip them for success in a global workplace.
