The Office of International Education and Development (OIED)
The Office of International Education and Development (OIED) was established in June 2003. Throughout the office’s tenure on campus it has welcomed over 5,000 international students and scholars and sent thousands of student’s abroad. The mission of OIED is to foster campus internationalization and raise awareness of the value of international education, inclusion, and intercultural diversity. We serve students, faculty, staff, and the community with the goal of creating leaders who possess the skills necessary to function in a globally interconnected world.
To further our commitment to internationalization, we provide international educational opportunities that enable Rattlers to develop their cross-cultural competencies by becoming knowledgeable of world affairs, developing regional expertise relevant to their specific fields of study, and to become proficient in one or more foreign languages. We work closely with academic departments to move forward the internationalization agenda at FAMU as outlined in the University’s Strategic Priorities.
