Welcome from

Director Robert Pickering...

Expanding cross-cultural competence in today's global economy is a large part of preparing our students for tomorrow's social, political and economic challenges. Our office provides Citadel students with opportunities to study abroad and opens our Citadel doors to students from around the world. By bridging students across cultures and geography, we better prepare our students for leadership in today's interconnected world.

Citadel students are strongly encouraged to study abroad as part of their college experience. Whether it's for a semester or a few weeks, connecting with people and places in another part of the world leaves a lasting impact on a students' perspective and world view.

Find out how our students can study abroad, connect with multicultural people and events at home, and access the resources they need as international students. Or if a student is preparing to attend The Citadel, make the first year a success with Citadel Success Institute (CSI).
