Director's Welcome

gei directorAs the Director of Study Abroad and Away (SAA) in the College of Professional and Global Education, I want to extend a warm welcome from San José State and the SAA team. We are a dedicated crew striving to offer the best, safest, and most engaging programs for our SJSU community and to our wonderful visitors who come from around the world. SJSU has a long history for engaging with our global community and SAA is resolute in our belief and commitment to inclusivity and providing intercultural experiences both abroad and on our beautiful campus in the heart of Silicon Valley. 

The SAA team is comprised of world travelers who have been fortunate enough to have our lives impacted from our journeys around the world.  We spend every day finding ways to share our passion for our global community with our students and our partners.
