Office of International Education

In learning about other cultures, there are a myriad of ways to interact with the people, ideas, customs, and languages of other cultures and societies. That is why our team in the Office of International Education is committed to experiential education domestically and abroad. Learning to navigate another culture prepares our students for success and promotes global understanding.

Through their personal and professional endeavors, RMC students, faculty, staff, and partners past and present will become contributing members of their respective communities at home and abroad by engaging in a lifelong practice of intercultural learning and global understanding.
