The International branch of UH Global welcomes students and visiting scholars from around the world to study and work at the University of Houston.
Learning Abroad facilitates travel across the globe through a number of international learning opportunities, including faculty-led programs, traditional study abroad programs, research opportunities, internships, volunteer opportunities, non-credit experiential learning programs, service learning programs, and exchange programs.
The Global Initiatives office facilitates collaborations around the world through strategic partnerships, scholarships, and grants.
Global Citizens Credential
The Global Citizens Credential (GCC) allows UH students enhance their undergraduate degrees with core global competencies and distinguish themselves as global citizens. UH students who participate in the GCC will gain global knowledge and skills and upon completion, can demonstrate this expertise through a certificate. The GCC helps students stand-out when applying to jobs, graduate school, and competitive international scholarships. It also encourages students to increase their level of global engagement on the UH campus and within their local community and beyond.
UH students who graduate with the GCC will receive a transcript notation, a signed certificate, and an honor cord to wear at graduation.
Process for Establishing International Affiliations
Any formal collaboration such as a Memorandum of Understanding, an Articulation Agreement, or a Contract between UH and a foreign institution requires the endorsement of UH Global, the Office of the Provost and, if necessary, the Office of the General Counsel before it can be implemented. The Process for Establishing International Affiliations assists UH faculty and administrators through the required steps in establishing formal collaborations.
Global Faculty Development Fund
The Global Faculty Development Fund (GFDF) was established to further faculty involvement in the globalization process of the university. This Provost initiative will increase both the assortment and quality of UH’s global programs by helping faculty to defray the costs of engaging in innovative global activities.
