Internationalizing the campus experience
The Center for Global Programs and Relations at the GAIA Centers works closely with campuses, schools, and units to support faculty research and scholarship. We develop activities that internationalize the campus, enhancing the global competency of the Rutgers community. With a focus on strong relationships, we also facilitate international partnerships and delegations.
The GAIA Centers offers several different funding opportunities open to units across the university aimed at internationalizing the campus experience, including the Biennial Theme grants. The center also administers the GAIA Grants, another funding avenue, which provide faculty the opportunity to pursue internationally focused instruction and research.
The GAIA Centers advance international research by providing assistance and immigration processing for incoming sponsored students and scholars, such as those who come to Rutgers through the Mandela Washington Fellowship.
Rutgers has nearly 400 international MOUs—and the GAIA Centers facilitate these agreements. These partnerships often lead to on-site visits from international delegations. The GAIA Centers, through the Center for Global Programs and Relations, coordinates such visitor requests. You may choose to visit our archived Center for Global Programs and Relations website.
