Mission Statement

The mission of the International Center is to provide and enhance, through both curricular and co-curricular activities, a range of opportunities which can expand the global understanding of the UNF community. To that end, the International Center is responsible for (1) recruiting and providing programs, activities, and services that address the specific needs of international students on campus and (2) developing and promoting study abroad activities for domestic students who seek international learning experiences. In addition, the International Center serves as the University’s compliance unit for federal regulations relating to international students and scholars. The International Center has four sub-units that deal with Study Abroad, International Students, the Student Affairs International Learning Scholarship (SAILS), and International Programs in general.
