Who We Are

AU OGO was founded in 2016 and it is a unit within University Outreach. The office creates opportunities for global engagement, cultural emersion experiences, and contributions towards community development across the globe. OGO provides affordable, short-term service-learning experiences to students who cannot afford traditional study abroad programs.

Additionally, OGO enables faculty to participate in short-term (1-2 weeks), outreach, community engagement, and research opportunities abroad. Outreach global education and cultural immersion programs exposes students, faculty, staff, and non-university participants to diverse perspectives, promotes critical thinking, enhances educational, historical, and social awareness, and increases understanding as related to culture, customs, traditions, religion, politics, and the world economy. The office also provides capacity training to domestic and global partners both online and face-to-face.
