Get Involved!

► For Students (before study abroad)

If you're considering study abroad, you likely have a passion for discovering other cultures and engaging with the global community. There are a number of ways you can get involved with international students here at UNCG and start building your intercultural skills even before going abroad. Click here to explore the many options for global connections offered on and around campus. 

► For Students (after study abroad)

Many students find that their experience abroad is the start of a lifelong passion for travel and intercultural engagement. However, they may also be unsure of how to incorporate all they learned and discovered about themselves into their future academic or personal pursuits. There are some opportunities specifically for students after they return from abroad below, or you can also explore the many international opportunities found around UNCG.
  • Stateside: this student organization was created in 2009 by UNCG students who had returned from abroad and were excited to share their experiences.  Stateside's mission is to provide a casual setting that allows students to process their study abroad experience, readjust to life after return, and create opportunities to promote study abroad to the campus community.  For more information about getting involved with Stateside, contact Tom Martinek at   
  • Re-entry Events: Many students have amazing and life changing experiences abroad and, as exciting as that can be, it can be tricky to relate that experience to others or integrate it into your life at UNCG.  Luckily, there are several opportunities on campus and in the larger community to help with that transition.  See the Re-entry Events tab for more information.

► For Faculty and Staff

The International Programs Center (IPC) greatly appreciates the support of faculty and staff to help promote study abroad and activities related to internationalizing our campus. There are many way you can get involved, including: advising students about study abroad, supporting international students on campus, inviting study abroad advisors into your classrooms, and even leading your own group of students abroad!
For more information about these options and many others, explore the Faculty and Staff page on IPC's main website. For more more in-depth information about advising international students and promoting study abroad, explore the Resources for Faculty and Staff tab hosted by IPC.
