As the international office of a Catholic, Jesuit university, the Office of International Education (OIE) forms interculturally competent and globally engaged problem-solvers who are agents for change within a complex world. OIE, as a catalyst for comprehensive internationalization, educates the greater Marquette community to become interculturally competent women and men for others through mutually beneficial collaborations in teaching, research, and service.

The Office of International Education (OIE) facilitates and promotes this transformative internationalization of Marquette University by recruiting diverse international students and scholars who enhance campus learning environments; providing comprehensive cross-cultural and legal advising for all international students; developing vibrant partnerships with international institutions which enable collaborative research as well as reciprocal student and faculty exchange relationships; creating innovative international academic service-learning opportunities; developing and integrating education abroad programs with Marquette's curricular and co-curricular learning goals; and by providing dynamic instruction in academic English language skills.

All of these efforts are implemented in the spirit of Ignatian tradition to form global citizens, who live and work within a diverse world society; who continually reflect upon how their vocation contributes to global solidarity; and who promote lasting social justice within the global human family.
