Hosting an International Visitor

Given our location, with easy access to rich and culturally diverse cities while being situated in a small American town, it is no surprise that MU attracts visiting scholars who greatly enhance our community from every corner of the globe.

We proudly host international exchange visitors from various countries to conduct research, teach, and work in a variety of capacities throughout the institution. It would be impossible to quantify the benefits derived by our faculty, students, and broader community from the exceptional diversity of perspectives brought by international scholars. These individuals enrich our community’s intellectual and research endeavors, international connections, and global perspectives.

Academic departments are encouraged to take advantage of Millersville University’s designation as a U.S. Department of State approved Exchange Visitor Program. Scholars typically collaborate on research or teach courses, but may come for purposes of observing, training, or lecturing. Departments should designate a faculty host to assist the exchange visitor to prepare to come to the U.S. and once he or she arrives to campus. In order to provide the prospective exchange visitor with adequate time to obtain a J-1 visa as well as to successfully support them through their experience at MU, please review the details provided by Global Education.
