About the Office of Global Strategy and Initiatives

“A modern university is inherently global in reach. In a world of increasing interdependence and diminishing borders, global engagement is no longer a peripheral concern but a necessity—and one that is integral to Emory’s mission to create, preserve, teach, and apply knowledge in the service of humanity. Emory has an important role to play in addressing critical world challenges, and rapid and evolving globalization requires that we acknowledge shifts in responsibilities and opportunities.

-from the 2015 introduction to the global strategy

Emory University’s Office of Global Strategy and Initiatives (GSI) is dedicated to the support, promotion, and expansion of Emory’s international engagement. Through the strategic internationalization of programs, curricula, and research, GSI supports creative global initiatives, fosters cross-unit collaboration, promotes a culturally vibrant and diverse campus, and coordinates Emory's international resources and partnerships. GSI leads the implementation of Emory’s global strategies, which it helped develop through a multi-year effort involving broad community input. The strategies provide a vision for the future of Emory's global engagement.
