Students at SP2 gain a global perspective through strong international curricular content, learning from international faculty, interacting with peers from across the globe, and engaging in study abroad programs and global immersion experiences.

SP2 welcomes students, faculty, staff, alumni, and distinguished visitors from around the world. SP2’s formal and informal programming is designed to embody a global focus at every level. Globally-focused student organizations provide support for our international student population and opportunities for intercultural engagement.
