Support Global Opportunities at Millersville

Successful graduates today need a global focus, cross-cultural understanding, and linguistic fluency, skills gained through global education experiences abroad or interactions with international students and cultures.

Millersville continues to broaden its global focus in cooperation with its 17 Educational Partners located across six continents to give students the opportunity to participate in international service projects, global internships, and academic study. In addition, international students are able to come to Millersville to learn here and help to expose our students to global diversity without even having to leave campus.
