Office of Overseas Study

Study Abroad



The IU Southeast Office of Study Abroad and Global Awareness (SAGA) mission is to increase the campus community's awareness, understanding, and appreciation of a wide variety of international cultures, practices, thoughts, and traditions.


The SAGA office offers campus wide support and implement on-and off-campus initiatives of multicultural and international scope. While this office works in tandem with various academic programs, it is primarily an administrative entity. 


The co-directors of the office of Study Abroad and Global Initiatives (SAGA) oversee program development and curriculum matters related to overseas study programs, and work closely with the Office of Overseas Study at IU Bloomington. 


The committee members advise and assist the co-directors in developing and promoting international activities and events at IUS. 


The committee and co-directors actively support international students and organizations’ efforts and assist the Admissions counselors and School advisors for High-School and International Recruitment and Study Abroad programs and scholarships. 


The office of Study Abroad and Global Awareness works closely with several administrative entities, including the IUS Academic Affairs Faculty Diversity Coordinator (Academy of Diversity and Inclusive Education), to coordinate various diversity initiatives, such as the International Education week (Fall), the Fair-trade Wares of the World (Fall), and the International Festival (Spring), provide faculty input to the overseas strategic planning process, actively promote multicultural awareness, and position IUS as a culturally inclusive campus in the Kentuckiana community.
