International Education & Programs


At SUNY Potsdam, we recognize the need to prepare our students and faculty so that they can succeed in an era of globalization and mass communication.

That preparation begins here in our classrooms and can expand across the globe!

Our Vision

Our vision is for the State University to lead the nation in offering diverse, high quality international learning opportunities.

This will be implemented through the coordination of international activities on each campus and providing dynamic leadership for the management of international education policies, initiatives and programs.

This vision is grounded in the values of inquiry, open-mindedness, respect, understanding and the need for academic rigor and experiential learning.
