Office of International Affairs
The Office of International Affairs (OIA) at DSU helps create mutually beneficial international partnerships with higher education institutions as well as with public and private sector agencies and organizations. These partnerships encompass programs for international students and for students interested in studying abroad. The OIA works to make DSU a destination for international students while simultaneously finding destinations abroad for current students and brings a global perspective into the teaching, research and study abroad programs of the institution.
