Faculty are key to the sustainable success of study abroad at the UHD.The Office of Study Abroad provides administrative and logistical support for all faculty led programs, offering international educational opportunities to students throughout the year.

  • Budget development and financial management
  • General Pre-Departure Orientation
  • Insurance and risk management services
