Office of Global Affairs

OGA is UW’s hub for global engagement

In today’s interconnected world, we all must be engaged globally to enact positive change in our communities locally, nationally and internationally.

The Office of Global Affairs (OGA) serves three main functions:

  • Catalyst and convener for global education, research, and service
  • Portal through which external stakeholders can access and engage with the UW community
  • Central guide to university rules and procedures governing study abroad, collaboration with international scholars, the conduct of global research, and the design and nurturing of foreign institutional partnerships
