A world of opportunities.

There has never been a better, or more important, time for students to take advantage of global learning opportunities. The staff in the Office of International Programs is here to guide you as you explore these opportunities on our campus and abroad.

At Northern, students, faculty and staff members come from around 50 different countries. Our office encourages the development of cultural awareness and sensitivity to diversity by providing extensive opportunities to engage in cross-cultural experiences and dialogue.
