Director's Welcome

GEI Team - Susie

As 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 Jose State and the SAA team. We are a dedicated team striving to offer the best, safest and most engaging programs for our SJSU community. 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 domestically and abroad. 

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.
