Who We Are

The Office of Global Services, led by Vanessa Meyers, was formed in 2014 by uniting two teams previously housed in the Office of International Programs: Global Program Support Services and International Student & Scholar Services. We are a team of professional international educators with more than 75 years of combined experience. 

We look forward to working with you!
