CIE Activities and Opportunities

The Center for International Education welcomes Graduate Students, International Scholars and Undergraduate Students to access several remarkable International research and professional networking opportunities!  CIE is located in Montague House, next to the College of Education in Furcolo Hall.  


CIE has been busy with a range of activities that have sought to make our world a more just place to live in. Examples include:


  • Completing 14 years of work strengthening the Higher Education system in Afghanistan
  • Working to reduce trauma symptoms for children in the Brazilian Favelas
  • Exposing the human rights abuses of dispossession in occupied Palestine
  • Identifying resilience factors for asylum caseworkers in Greece with Syrian refugees
  • Finishing 5 years of work with the Education in Crisis and Conflict Network with an interactive tool providing evidence of successful policies
  • Enabling youth who have experienced adversity to transition to independent adult life from residential settings in Scotland
  • Highlighting the extent of clerical child sexual abuse in world religions


During intersession, CIE submitted two large-scale grants focusing on extending our work in Higher Education infrastructure and Accelerated Education (Health Literacy) developments in crisis and conflict settings. During 2020 we are tracking several other new opportunities including one looking at evidence-based capacity building. These projects not only bring hope to those in enduring settings of adversity, but also generate professional opportunities and funding to support students.


For those of you focused on addressing the UN sustainable development goals or have international work in your hearts, CIE offers many different kinds of opportunities. If you have a project or activity in mind, come talk to us about working together.
