About Us

Our Mission

The Office of International Education and Services (OIES) team is happy to help foster an environment in which university stakeholders - administrators, faculty, staff, students, and residents of the local community and Southeast Texas - have diverse opportunities to gain appreciation, knowledge, and understanding of other cultures and global trends.

OIES is the comprehensive home for International Student Programs, Study Abroad, and International Student Organizations. All programs and activities are intended to help enrich the experiences of international students and scholars on campus and to help expand global engagement for students, faculty, and staff.
