Welcome to the hub for internationalization at UC Santa Cruz. Here you will find information about how the Division of Global Engagement is advancing campus-wide internationalization.

The goal, comprehensive internationalization, is to ensure that all members of the campus community — students, faculty, and staff — are prepared and encouraged to study, teach, conduct research, and work in a global context, and that institutional policies, programs, and initiatives are aligned to achieve this goal.

UC Santa Cruz is poised to implement its Strategic Plan for Internationalization guided by the Implementation Plan which prioritizes specific goals for immediate focus, followed by longer-term goals over the next three to five years.

As we work toward internationalization, we are intent on maintaining focus on UC Santa Cruz’s campus priorities:

  1. Advance student success by improving retention and graduation rates and closing equity gaps
  2. Increase UC Santa Cruz’s research profile and impact
  3. Foster an inclusive campus climate that embraces and values diversity
  4. Improve efficiency, effectiveness, and resilience
