International Education

Encouraging students to travel and study all over the world has been one of SU’s priority pillars, along with increasing the number of international students in classrooms on campus and providing more opportunities for faculty engagement in other countries. Global perspectives not only enhance the worldview of SU students, but also help promote the reputation of SU well beyond our immediate geographic region. Today, the Janet Dudley-Eshbach Center for International Education fosters valuable collaborations that extend SU’s reach worldwide. 

In the past two decades, the number of SU students studying abroad has nearly quadrupled.  In 2016, SU was recognized by the Institute for International Education as one of the top 40 master’s comprehensive universities in the U.S. for credits earned abroad, with some 425 students studying internationally in one year. Through the Office of Study Abroad, SU faculty lead short-term Global Seminars, and Salisbury Abroad programs provide semester-long options. Through SU’s English Language Institute, non-native speakers have a pathway to study on campus. Since its opening, the number of international students enrolled full-time has tripled. An International Faculty House welcomes teachers, scholars, artists and researchers as global visitors in residency.

Campaign Priorities & Initiatives

Through the Campaign for Salisbury University, SU’s Center for International Education seeks to:

  • Create scholarships that will provide more SU students with opportunities to study abroad, expanding their worldviews and transforming their lives.
  • Create faculty grants to help support the internationalization of curriculum, and foster support for the global engagement of SU faculty.
  • Expand opportunities for visiting global scholars to enrich the campus and greater community.
  • Foster support and mentorship for SU’s increasing numbers of U.S. Student Fulbright recipients, and other international fellowships, scholarships and awards.

Study Abroad Scholarship Inspires Students’ Latin American Studies
As an SU student, Paige Lewis never planned to spend a whole year in Latin America. Being selected for the Dudley-Eshbach Study Abroad Scholarship, however, allowed her to study in both Chile and Ecuador, bolstering her experiences as a Spanish major. “I learned that every experience should be taken, whether it is fishing in a mountain pond, swimming in an Amazon waterfall, or just sitting at dinner with your [host] family and appreciating being able to communicate in a language completely different than your own,” she said.READ MORE
