Visiting our campus / Meeting with us

The International Office is the first point of contact for requests involving international delegations that wish to visit our campus. Our role is to offer advice to visiting delegations, search for common areas of interest with administrators or faculty, and to facilitate the eventual planning and logistics of delegation visits.

Please note:

  • We require 4-6 weeks advanced notice for international visit requests
  • During the summer months (May-August) many academics are away conducting research and therefore not all requests can be accommodated
