Welcome from Vice Provost

Lisa Alvarez-Cohen, Vice Provost & Senior International Officer

Welcome from the Vice Provost

Welcome to the Global Engagement Office (GEO) at the University of California, Berkeley! GEO facilitates and coordinates global engagement activities across organizational units in support of the university’s mission in teaching, research, and public service. We serve both as a resource and clearinghouse for members of the campus community, and as a liaison for current and prospective international partners.

Today’s global ecosystem requires that leaders be skilled in collaboration across organizational, national, and cultural boundaries. International partnerships in education can cultivate the intercultural competency of our students, while international collaborations in research can expand the scope and impact of our discoveries and innovations. GEO is proud to support the internationalization of education and research at UC Berkeley to the benefit of our global society.
