With the goal of furthering international and transnational education at UMass Boston, OITA is a valuable on-campus resource for international students, faculty, and staff, as well as scholars and other visitors.
Whether you are a UMass Boston student looking to study abroad, an international student planning to study at UMass Boston, a faculty member interested in transnational research, teaching and global-urban engagement, a department that wishes to bring visiting scholars to your department, a representative of a non-profit or a university that focuses on international projects, a scholar hoping to come to UMass Boston for the International Visiting Scholar Academy (IVSA), or a visitor searching for workshops and seminars, OITA can help you.
OITA staff, advisory board, and research committees work to help faculty create transnational academic curricula that reflect the university’s global-urban context and commitment to international affairs while developing transnational and trans-disciplinary programs through teaching, research, community engagement, and university functions.
Get in touch with OITA by visiting their office on the second floor of the Campus Center, or by calling 617-287-5586 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
