Go International

The mission of UW-Platteville International Programs is to provide leadership and support for the comprehensive internationalization of the UW-Platteville and to prepare students, faculty and staff as globally competent citizens.

Internationalization is the process of incorporating global perspectives into teaching, learning and research to meet the university’s obligation to prepare students for productive and responsible citizenship in the world (definition adapted from the American Council on Education’s “Mapping Internationalization on U.S. Campuses: 2012 Edition”). This includes:

  • Building intercultural skills and competencies among students, faculty and staff
  • Establishing relationships and collaborations with individuals and institutions abroad
  • Promoting respect of religious, cultural, and linguistic differences
  • Developing strategic, coordinated processes that align and integrate policies, programs and initiatives

We hope that these resources will assist students, faculty and staff in their own endeavors to go international.
