UMKC’s Study Abroad and Global Engagement (SAGE) Office seeks to increase the internationalization of the UMKC campus by supporting and encouraging academic programs and initiatives that are international in focus. In particular, it works to expand and strengthen the number and quality of international study abroad, research and fellowship opportunities available to UMKC’s students and faculty. It does so through the promotion and coordination of intercultural programs on campus; the promotion and coordination of study abroad and international exchange programs; the development of collaborative relations with institutions abroad; the development of policy guidance and program direction for international programs; and the coordination of UMKC’s involvement in nationally competitive, prestigious fellowships and scholarships programs.
