JMU International Programs — 2011-12
Change Language:
Message From The Executive Director

Although I have been excited to watch the Office of International Programs grow steadily since I became its executive director in 2003, we all know that numbers and statistics cannot tell the full story. Yes, I am pleased to see the ever-increasing presence of international students, faculty and staff on our campus. And yes, I celebrate the ever-widening scope and size of our study abroad programs. What gives all of us in the OIP the greatest pride, however, is witnessing the spirit of internationalization permeate JMU and understanding that living in a different culture unfailingly changes students’ lives – whether that different culture is in Harrisonburg or Cairo.

I invite you to join the journey – come roam with us.

Lee Sternberger
Executive Director
Office of International Programs
