Stop Anti-Asian Hostility

After seeing an increase in violence against the Asian communities in the U.S., at Global Engagement we renew our commitment for inclusion, diversity, and standing for equality for all people, regardless of race, nationality, gender, or religion, and provide a welcoming place for our international students and scholars. Some USU students and scholars from Asian countries and Asian Americans have experienced racism and harassment within the community, with an increase in incidences starting in January 2020 when COVID-19 had reached the United States. We condemn these acts and stand with and support the Asian community.

About Us

Welcome to the Office of Global Engagement. We oversee and facilitate study abroad programs, immigration advising for international students and visiting scholars, Fulbright programs, and international agreements. We strive to make USU a warm, welcoming, and diverse community of global citizens. If it's global, contact us.
