Office of
Global Education Initiatives

The Queens College Office of Global Education Initiatives (OGEI) is dedicated to international education and global engagement. We support an internationalized curriculum and help develop opportunities for study, research, and internships abroad. We also welcome students and scholars from around the world to our campus. Queens is the World's Borough, and we strive to reflect our home.
