CSD's International Programs
Initiatives to increase the number of students studying abroad and the number of international students and scholars on campus are key, but must be complemented by a campus culture of global awareness, sensitivity and engagement and the integration of international perspectives and experiences into learning and discovery. Every graduate must be transformed into a global citizen. The University of Minnesota must ensure that internationalizing the university results in internationalization of the student. With a goal of preparing global citizens, the CSD program promotes the internationalization of the teaching, research, and outreach missions of the University.
“We know that we’re one of the nation’s and world’s most dynamic and efficient universities,” said University of Minnesota President Eric Kaler. “We’re continually improving, we’re taking on the world’s grand challenges and we’re preparing the next extraordinary generation of leaders for Minnesota and the world. This latest ranking simply confirms that, and we’re excited and grateful to be recognized.”
