International Programs


Promoting Global Careers, Global Skills and Intercultural Understanding.

Welcome, and thank you for visiting the website of the International Programs office at UNCP.


In today's global economy, the need for North Carolina college graduates to be global citizens has never been greater. Our students need to be cross-culturally competent in order to effectively understand challenges facing our world today and in order to use these competencies to help shape solutions for world problems. Our mission is to prepare our students to meet the complexity of a changing world through international engagements and educational opportunities.


Our vision is for all UNC Pembroke students to have the opportunity to attain global awareness through education and international engagements. The outcome of these engagements will produce globally engaged citizens with the critical skills to succeed in a rapidly changing world.

Our office promotes UNCP abroad, recruits and supports high-quality international degree-seeking and exchange students from all over the world, and administers cooperative degree and non-degree agreements with a number of high-profile partners and academic institutions abroad.  International Programs also creates, offers, and manages exciting Study Abroad opportunities throughout the globe for UNCP students while offering students and parents alike outstanding support from pre-departure onwards. In addition, International Programs oversees UNCP's innovative, and highly-successful, English Language Institute which provides outstanding ESL instruction to our growing population of international students.

Thank you again for your interest in International Programs at UNCP, and please contact us if we can be of any assistance.
