CEHD's international students

CEHD strives to be an international college, believing that cultural and international scholarly exchange makes our community more vibrant and effective in our mission to improve lives. You bring your ideas, experiences, and efforts to our college and University community. We see that and profoundly appreciate it. We want you to know that you are respected and wanted on our campus and in our college.

Our international students bring valuable insights and passion to our research and classroom experiences; our international scholars bring new frameworks and expertise to our projects and programs; and our international partners bring a spirit of generosity, cooperation, and friendship to our collaborations.

We commit to:

  • Prioritizing our students, scholars, and partners. We will take care of you first, ensuring you have the environment and services you need to be successful in your work with us.
  • Sharing up-to-date information in a timely manner. As changes occur in our political climate, we will offer thoughtful guidance and prompt responses to questions to the best of our ability.
  • Building a safe and accountable climate. You will have our support. We are your advocates and your friends. Should you experience anything here that makes you feel unsafe or unwanted, we will listen to you, believe in you, and uphold you as a member of our community.

You are welcome here. Our differences drive our greatness.
