Welcome to the Office of Global Engagement - the Wolfpack’s gateway to the world.

About NC State Global

As a leading public research university, NC State is dedicated to creating prosperity in the state, across the country and around the world. International collaboration is a critical component of these efforts – enabling shared discovery, innovation, and solutions to some of the world’s most pressing challenges. Equally important are opportunities for student learning and preparation for leadership and problem solving in our rapidly changing landscape.

NC State Global advances the university’s internationalization efforts through the development and ongoing support of strategic partnerships with institutions abroad and through the provision of critical infrastructure, support services, and campus programs here in Raleigh. Our office serves as the primary liaison with international offices at partner universities to expand study abroad opportunities, support international students, integrate international experiences into NC State’s academic programs and create new pathways for research, outreach, and professional development.


NC State Global provides institutional leadership to promote Global Learning for All by providing students, faculty, staff and the communities we serve with the strategic partnerships, global knowledge, cultural understanding, skills and hands-on experiences needed to empower the next generation of global leaders.
