Internationalizing at Wesleyan is the work of the Fries Center for Global Studies. On this site, we house our university-wide internationalization initiatives.


The Fries Center for Global Studies expands opportunities for the Wesleyan community to engage in local and global multicultural environments. We collaborate with students, faculty, and staff to advance the knowledge, language and intercultural skills, self-awareness, and empathy needed for responsible participation in an increasingly interdependent world.


We aspire to a world in which humility, cultural self-awareness, and mutual understanding make justice and thriving possible for all. We envision a university in which all forms of learning, research, and creative endeavor are enlivened by perspectives, languages, and experiences from across the globe.
