Creating Connections without Borders between Rutgers and the World

About the GAIA Centers

The Centers for Global Advancement and International Affairs (GAIA Centers) is comprised of three units. Not sure which one to visit? If you are:

  • A Rutgers student who is interested in studying abroad, immersing yourself in a different culture, and getting to know the people of another country, the Center for Global Education will help you find the right country and program. We offer more than 180 study and service-learning programs to more than 60 countries for all majors, so make some time to talk with our advisers to find the right program for you.

  • A student studying at Rutgers from abroad, or an international scholar, the Center for Global Services provides you with advice and information about immigration, adjusting to life in the United States, and helping you and your family feel at home. We serve more than 10,000 international students and scholars at Rutgers, providing you with the nuts and bolts of immigration processing services and much more.

  • A Rutgers student or faculty member interested in attending or conducting an international activity or a research institution or program outside the U.S. searching for international partnerships, the Center for Global Programs and Relations  facilitates international research and education funding, international partnerships, and designs and supports on-campus events that address global topics and creates cross-cultural social networks.

Together, the GAIA Centers enable Rutgers to be a globally engaged institution at the forefront of international higher education. Read our vision statement.
