The University of San Francisco: Provost/Academic Affairs

International Academic Programs and Immersion Trips

In pursuit of its mission, USF promotes a global perspective.  USF aims to increase the number of students studying abroad, whether it is semester long or short-term study abroad.  The Senior Vice Provost oversees the Center for Global Education (CGE) which supports students who wish to study abroad.  In addition, the Arrupe Justice Immersion Trips are included in the short-term study that offers programs within the United States and international destinations.  The Senior Vice Provost and CGE staff will work closely with faculty to ensure the safety of students overseas, compliant issues, and financial resources.
