Global Education and Initiatives (GEI)

Global Education and Initiatives is contributing to the internationalization of San José State University by providing students the opportunity to study abroad on short-term programs (Faculty-Led Programs and Summer School Abroad Programs), offering Alternative Spring Break Programs (more information coming soon!), and designing other globally focused opportunities. Through these channels, we seek to cultivate a diverse global community through international academic opportunities and partnerships.
