The World at UCR


As UC Riverside's international ambassadors, we foster global engagement. We connect students and faculty at UCR with opportunities to work and learn abroad. We also work with internal and external partners to help international students, research scholars, and staff come to UC Riverside.





International Affairs serves as a central hub for the University’s international activity.


Our goal is to amplify UCR’s global connections, enhance our global impact, and provide a world-class education that equips our students with the tools to navigate a changing global landscape.
