Mission Statement

The Global Engagement Office (GEO) is your link between Chicago State University and the world. Born out of the university's mission to "produce graduates who are responsible, discerning and informed global citizens with a commitment to lifelong learning and service", GEO serves the entire campus by raising the level of globalization through study abroad opportunities, language enhancements, international student enrollment, and cultural enrichment.

GEO creates an environment that encourages CSU students who are developing a growing interest in globalization, and it supports those international students whose intellectual quests have led them to CSU. Additionally, GEO fosters opportunities for faculty to engage students with innovative global perspectives that transcend disciplines.
