Centers & Programs
Supported by GSI
GSI supports a strategic institutional partnership between the UO and King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Our joint programs include a GlobalWorks International Research Internship as part of the KAUST Visiting Student Research Program, support of a year-long KAUST faculty mentorship program developed in partnership with our Global STEM Education Program, and faculty research seminar exchanges.
GSI and GEO cover the full cost of a US passport for any Pell grant eligible or Pathway Oregon student. Our goal is to put passports in the hands of students who never dreamed of international travel and help them become citizens of the world.
GSI can facilitate an introduction between UO faculty and an international faculty and/or professional who can speak to students on a wide range of topics at no charge.
